Yahrzeit #2

Lily Pads on the St. Joseph River
A River in Indiana

I don't have words or insights or even well-formed thoughts to share.  No morals or messages or conclusions.

But I was thinking about you today, because it's been two years now that you've been gone.

And I still find that hard to believe, and I still don't understand.  And sometimes I still break down - at unexpected times and, invariably, in inconvenient locations - when I think about how cancer came like a quick, ugly thief and stole you.

I'm also still so in awe of how you handled it: with faith, hope, and love. I hope I never get complacent about what I witnessed.  I don't want to not be changed by it.

Two years later.  You are still my hero.

Wow. I just read your posts that were linked to this one. I can't imagine what you are going through, but I am praying for you today.

in His precious, unfailing love,
