man, that first step is a doozy

we have taken the first step in this new journey and it was a big one.  the fog rolled in and the path is completely obscured.  but we walk in faith.

the day after i arrived in PA, my father in law passed away.  we are moving here to be close to our in-laws and to other family, so this was a big shock.  we are confident that this is God's plan for us and that this is His timing.  He is the giver of life and the only one who knows the number of our days.  Life is in His hands.  So we give Clayton back to  him and rejoice in the knowledge that we will see him again one day on the streets of gold. 

but in the meantime, we struggle with sadness and grief.  the fog threatens to overcome us.  we are distracted and confused.  we are human.  yet we know that our family needs us in this hour and we are thankful to be among loved ones and offering love and support.  Deryck and the girls will arrive on Saturday and we will be together for the funeral and some family time. 

thank you all for your love and prayers.  we are sustained by your prayers and lifted up.
