Away

I'll be away until Tuesday evening to be with my partner at his mother's memorial. Please continue to lift us in prayer during these tough times, and look for a new post late Tuesday/early Wednesday. While I'll miss you all, I feel it's best right now to give my complete attention to supporting him. I pray you'll understand.

Blessings to each of you,
Tim

Oh, Tim; Ihad no idea. I haven't been keeping up with everyone this last week.

Please know that my thoughts and prayer are with you and Walt, and his family at this time.

Please also be safe in your travels.

Love, Vikki.

We more than understand. You're were you must be. Prayers for her soul and for her family.

Tim said...

Vikki, thank you so much for your concern. I'm so pleased to write that we were given a lovely day today. The service was uplifting, the family gathering peaceful and joy-filled, and now Walt rests quietly for the first time in over a week. Our travels have been safe and sound.

God is truly good--He answers the prayers of His people!

Love,
Tim

Davis, thanks so much for your patience and understanding. If there's anything this place is about, it's about living to the best of our abilities, doing the best we can with what we've been given. Trying to trudge ahead to meet daily deadlines just seemed counterproductive on all fronts. And now that we've come through the past few days, I understand all the more why it was necessary to break away.

But I'm ever so anxious to get back into the full swing--looking home to sitting down at the desk tomorrow night and looking into the Word with everyone once again!

Blessings of joy and light,
Tim

Please let Walt know that my prayers are with him. Thank God he has you to see him through this difficult time. You are a blessing.

CM, it's so good to hear from you during this time.

Walt and I have learned a great deal about each other, ourselves, and family during this time. It's been tough, but rewarding!

Thank you and everyone else for your prayers and kind thoughts. I know the blessings we've received during this ordeal directly result from so much faith, positive thinking, and kindness shared with us by all of you!

Be blessed always--and once I get back home, let's catch up!

Tim,

I'm so happy for you and especially Walt that things went so beautifully. You are both loved!

Annette, this experience has truly taught us what largesse in need truly means. Every expression of kindness, concern, and understanding came at just the right moment--like breakers rising against gaining tides.

We were embraced in every way and every touch was dear to our hearts. Such love... there aren't words to express how wonderful you all have been!

God's blessings and light were inescapable through each of you!

Thanks so much, Annette, for all you did personally for us. We'll never forget it. I hope soon to write a bit about what healing we (and Walt especially) gained during this time.

Be blessed, my sister,
tim

Inside our hands, outside our hearts said...

I am sorry to hear of such sorrow. I shall keep you and your partner close beside me.

Soft love,
T

Tim said...

T, thank you so much. Your thoughtfulness and concern are precious to us--we couldn't imagine getting through this without wonderful people like you keeping us in mind.

I'm still trying to get back in the swing of things here, and not doing a good job of it. I've written what was supposed to be today's post six times, none to my satisfaction. But, with God's help, I'll come around!

It's terrific to see you, T! I got your email as well and will write back soon.

May you be blessed with peace and joy,
Tim
