good morning pilgrim pals ...


it's saija, from thro'a glass darkly ... this is my first post over here, tho' as i was telling David, i come over and read your notes often ...

life has gotten hectic in my world ... sometimes in a good way ... but at the moment, mostly stressful ways ...

leo's dad has just been put in palliative care ... he lives 1500 miles away from us ... leo is not close to his dad ... nor to the sister who has been caring for his dad ... none the less, when eternity is at stake and final farewells are near, it is extremely distressing ... as far as we know, they are not believers.

so my first posting, is a request for prayer ... for this whole situation that is playing out ... thank you ...

on the up side of my life - we celebrated leo's 54th birthday yesterday ... and - i've been swimming & biking & just breathing in God's goodness all around me during the week ...

tho' life can try us - it also purifies us and gives us pockets of rest ...

blessings on your week!

Saija, I popped over to read your testimony and was so shocked by your picture! I was looking at me! I will have to find my pic of me and share it with you. We could have been identical twins at that time of our lives! ;)

I will be praying for Leo's dad and sister. What a heavy, heavy weight.
