Where I've Been

I guess one who blogs as consistently as I have cannot disappear for any length of time without faithful friends worrying.

We have been in the midst of a family crisis that has required our complete attention. It required my canceling the much anticipated trip to my hometown for my grandmother's 100th birthday. In the meantime, we have been engaged in constant prayer, damage control, and attempting to maintain a sense of normalcy for the children.

This struggle is of an extremely sensitive and private nature, but I will reassure you that 1) We are all healthy. 2) The baby is doing very well and is hopefully unaffected by the stressful nature of the current crisis. 3) Our marriage is as strong as ever and Wingnut and I are a united front in confronting this issue. 4) We have had an army of prayer warriors praying for us. 5) We believe we are on the backside of this crisis and all will be for the ultimate Glory of God.

We are so very thankful for the gift of faith without which we could not possibly endure. I'm hoping to get back to regular blogging very soon.
