Loss

My wife just called and said that she had to have her dog put down. Mocha lived a very good life. She was roughly 12 years old. She had lung cancer. My wife is taking it very hard. I asked for your prayers for her. The following is for her:
Do not hurry
as you walk with grief,
it does not help the journey.

Walk slowly, pausing often:
do not hurry
as you walk with grief.

Do not be disturbed
by memories that come unbidden.
Swiftly forgive,
and let God speak for you
unspoken words.
Unfinished conversation
will be resolved in Him.
Be not disturbed.

Take time, be gentle
as you walk with grief.

Updates...

I realize that updating this site is a lot smoother than in the past. So, what I might do, is update my regular site (http://odysseus.wordpress.com) and this one simultaneously. That way, people who venture here can see my reflections from the other site as well and visa versa.

I'll keep you posted.
