My big brother Lee passed away early this morning. Now that he has passed away, of course there is emptiness and pain, confusion and maybe even anger at death taking my brother of only 66 years. But in many ways, the gift of Lee’s life is still here with me. He lives on in my memories and in all the lives he touched. Remembering and telling stories about him will help me keep the gift of Lee’s life alive. Thank you God for the blessing of this amazing big brother.

Snowfall to remember

“Behold I make all things new” . . . Jenni and I woke up to behold this beautiful scene on our staycation! I looked out the windows and marveled at the snow as it fell with a hypnotic and calming steadiness. I believe this can be a prayer as I think of my God who sends it. Wherever I am on my journey, I do not want to walk through life and miss the glory of God! This first snowfall of the season is one I will always remember . . .
