How to Find Comfort in Times of Trouble

It's been a while since I've written about my Mom. New symptoms and challenges have developed. Two weeks ago, a sensory seizure left her without the use of her left hand, a loss of function similar to a stroke. Recent imaging studies are helping us understand what needs to happen for her next. 

I am writing about it at Segullah today. About comfort, the psalms, and inner storms.

Mom, I know Jesus will calm the waves you feel. He is not sleeping in the hull. He is listening to you, and loving you. You are in his boat. You are in his hands.

Your bravery makes us believe no matter what happens, it will be alright. And I'm with Dad. There is still time. Still much for you to do together. I love you.

  7. Dear friends, some of you I know personally, some I don't. But thank you. Thank you so very much for your kindness and outreach as my mom has struggled to move down this new path. Your compassion and words have brought me to tears again and again and again. Much love.
