process


(both boys in the sink...wrestling)


The God who made us what we are knows what we desire to be and waits with infinite patience while we become what we can. We, on the other hand, know that whatever we need to become all that we can be, this same great and loving God will supply. For all of that, we are thankful. From that gratitude grow love and commitment, faith and trust, wonder and worship.

~ Joan Chittister ~
from her book The Liturgical Year

We are all in process...a day at a time...a step at a time. For that I am grateful.

I keep getting repeating or sequential number messages several times a day. I am amazed at how much seeing those lift my heart and my faith that someone--something bigger is with me/for me.

This morning, we will have a burial service with just the family present.

Saturday afternoon, we will have the memorial service from noon to 3 p.m. at the Bay City Oddfellows hall. If anyone needs more information, please let me know via email or comments.

My thoughts are with you today, during this process.
I keep re-reading your 1111 post (see my comment there). I still can't believe I would read such a thing today!
