silence

This little corner of the blog world will be silent for a while. Some of you know that my brother, Ned, has been battling cancer for a while. He is in the hospital today breathing slowly and lying peacefully while we all wait for God to take him home to heaven. I have cried many many tears during this whole unexpected process. There are so many questions that I cannot wrap my small, shallow, human mind around, but one thing I know... God is still trustworthy. He is good. His power is perfected in weakness. When I sit and imagine that in only a few short days or hours, Ned will be standing in the presence of this sovereign God who created him and numbered all his days perfectly, I feel comfort. I almost feel jealous. What a glorious meeting!

We'll be traveling back to Mississippi for a few days and I'll be back to blogging as soon as we return. My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
