Those Promises

The enormity of this thing we’re doing comes crashing in on waves. The truck pulled in about 15 minutes ago to start with the loading and I almost got sick to my stomach.

  1. A message of wisdom and faith that we all need to be reminded of daily and on many days that reminder supports us only second by second.

They feed each other, literally and figuratively. I hope his will be a peaceful and healing place for you and S. It will be an adjustment…..but it will be good.
