Blogging hiatus

Due to a sudden and unexpected death in our immediate family this week, I will be taking a break from blogging for the next week or so. Thank you for the comments on the past posts to which I haven't been able to respond.

Sudden and unexpected ... I know about that. The shock effect. I often think of D and how shocked he must have been to so suddenly be transported to the heavenly realms ... shocked and delighted. But we who are left behind must bare the cost. Not easy to bare the cost but possible in His strength which is needed daily, hourly, minutely. The God of all comfort be with you and yours.

Id like to invite everyone to read a blog post today of a woman who joined the old order Mennonite church from the outside. I'm extremely lucky in publishing her very first, and most likely last post on Amish Stories. A lot of work was involved in her getting permission to be even able to write anything on the internet, and permission was given by her bishop. So please stop by and read about a woman who gave-up her car and other worldly possessions for the person that she loved. Richard from Amish Stories

A sincere and heartfelt thank you to each and every one for the love and support you've shown through your comments. We may only know one another via blogging but we are all part of a larger family. We'll meet each other someday, if not in this world then in the next.

God bless you all.
