Missing Man Formation…
It’s been a month.
I have opened a new section on my blog: The Stroke Season. This allows me to have the things I posted during Carol’s journey in one, easily accessible spot. They cover a period of ten and a half months, from the stroke’s onset to her home-going.
It’s not about me.
Maybe my words can somehow be helpful to others in their seasons of loss. It’s what I tried to say at Carol’s memorial service:
The work of the Spirit turns our nostalgia into fuel for our nurturing of others.
Our losses are not meant to subtract from our witness for the Gospel. On the contrary, God means for them to mature the uniqueness of our witness as we touch other lives with our trust, our hope, and our full assurance of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Have you embraced him as your Lord and Savior?
Jesus’ words are still true. When he rose again on the third day, he added weight and veracity to every word he spoke. Listen again to what he said:
John 14:1-6 (ESV) “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.  In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.  And you know the way to where I am going.”  Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?”  Jesus said to him,
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
