Got up early this morning to take care of feeding/milking/watering and then we were off to church. Darren preached and I got to sit with my daddy. :) (He isn't preaching much right now...he has a hernia and needs to have surgery) Then we were down the road to a funeral....so sad. I absolutely hate to see people in pain...left behind while those they love spread their wings and fly to distant shores. This man lost his wife unexpectantly. I cannot imagine the pain that will fill his heart in the deepest hours of the night; when quiet closes in and the memories and whispers of her love come to call. My heart is breaking for him and his family. After the funeral, we left to visit with my grandmother who was just diagnosed with lymphoma. She will get her tests back Thursday to see if the cancer is contained in her lymph nodes or if it has spread. We are desperately praying that it is contained. Such sadness makes me want to cling to all that is good and true and refuse to let go.
