Thank you All for your prayers and your kind words, they have meant a lot to me as I have walked through this “valley of the shadow of death”. I must admit I am still in shock and seem to be in an emotional and mental fog. I know that grief is a process and there are no shortcuts through it. I am grateful for the comfort of the Lord I serve and for the prayers and thoughts of friends. I hope to be back blogging soon. As a way of getting back on track I am setting small goals; one is to have my Etsy shop up again by Monday. I hope to be blogging soon as well. I must admit that it is hard to concentrate on anything at the moment so reading blogs, message boards, and other media is sidelined until I can get back on track; I will catch up as soon as possible. On a positive note, I seem to have no problem cleaning and organizing and am going at it like a professional Merry Maid.
This is a photo of a rose in my rose garden. We had quite a storm last night; lots of wind and buckets of rain. Examining my rose bushes for any damage from the storm has shown me that something as fragile as a rose can survive the storm.
