I only had ten minutes or so to look out the bedroom window to see the moon, Jupiter, and Venus in close proximity. It was just after sunset. I quickly sketched and returned to my wife. I am sitting across from her now as I finish the post. There is reason why I will not forget the scene.
For some friends, this little post may be coming as surprise. If you are one of those, take heart in the only Refuge that I know, and try reading Psalm 39 and 139 when you finish reading and looking.
The view in the heavens I quickly sketched is marked by one of my saddest days. You see, my wife has been seized with cancer for a fifth time, but this time is more serious–again bringing into focus the frailty of my life and hers and ours together. If it was not for knowing that He knows our fragile state, I do not know what I would do. We don’t know how the walk ahead will be but it will probably not be easy. We also don’t know how far the walk will go. It could be years but it may not be. If you want more information, you can find us on Facebook or send us an email. As a reminder, remember that the movement of the heavens marks time. Our personal time will not repeat itself. Every minute becomes a choice of how to live and who to live for.
