I haven't written anything for quite some time for many different reasons. Mainly though, it is because life has gotten so busy. There doesn't seem to be enough time to stop and put my thoughts down into words.
We've started a new school year and everything is flowing smoothly with our academics, however we have taken two vacations since August and so now it is time to get the house all organized as well.
It's easy to let things get piled up, but it's impossible for us to live well amongst the clutter. How wonderful life is when we detach ourselves from the material possessions of this world. Some of us are called to this more than others. Right now I have two dear friends that are faced with the biggest detachment of all and that is their lives in this world. How scary and hard it must be to be faced with having to say goodbye to your loved ones, especially your children. Our faith in God has to be strong to be able to trust in His will. Our human minds can't begin to fathom this love He has for us. It is through our suffering that we are able to join our Lord and Savior on the cross. Our crosses are so small compared to others and yet they seem so heavy. It is when we are able to offer our sufferings up in prayer that we truly feel the presence of God amidst the pain. My mind is constantly with my dear friends in prayer and in deeds. How I pray for their strength and that of their families because as hard as it must be for them, they are close to joining our Lord in Heaven. Their families however, will still be here mourning the loss and feeling the pain. I pray that they may find comfort with our Lord on the cross and join their sufferings with His. This is the way to Heaven for no one comes to the Father except through the Son.

Our Lord is an awesome Lord and will love us always.

Please pray for Kelly and Linda during these next few weeks. Thank you and may God bless you all.
