This blog follows our family's journey to life after death. Our daughter Anna died November 25, 2007. In Jesus' name we press on.... to a new job, a new state, a new home, a new life. Come with us as we start a new chapter in our lives and as we press on to our eternal home.

Restore unto me
Yes, I am excited about the house. Yes, I am enjoying the fall colors. Yes, I have much to be thankful for. Yet, this time of year is hard. It was hard in OKC and it's still hard in VA. Call it "seasonal affective disorder," "post traumatic stress," or whatever else you want, it's still hard. I have to work to keep the tears from spilling out. They are so near the surface. The smallest bump makes them overflow.
So this is my prayer and my song today--for me and for anyone else who struggles with overflowing tears...
Cast me not away from Your presence, O Lord
And take not Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of My salvation
And renew a right spirit within me.
(Lyrics from "Create in me a clean heart", taken from Ps. 51:11-12)
