Darkness and Light

For many weeks now it hasn't been easy to write a post about Erik.  He isn't doing well.  Difficult, hard decisions to make.  He has been receiving hospice care for a week now.  I don't wish to go into all the details here, right now.   Our mom arrived today to spend the holiday with us and she got to see him, which was so good. 

I am standing firm, trusting God's sovereignty in everything.  Pray with us for precious Erik.  Ask the Lord to comfort him and cover him with his loving presence.  

Thank you and Merry Christmas.  There is always reason to praise and thank our God, even when things are hard.

The light (our Savior) shines in the darkness (our broken, sin-cursed world), and the darkness has not suppressed it.  John 1:5  

The Light is triumphant every time.  And that comforts me.
