It’s a been a strange last 30 days.
Since Valentine’s Day–
One virus-bug-infection-something-yuck after another and a few weeks ago I completely lost my voice.
And it felt like I lost my voice too.
My writing voice.
I’m the kind of person who would rather go quiet than force words, so it has been rather–
Quiet around here.
But I’ve missed you all.
And after the flu-cold-rhythmic-coughing-antibiotics-and-yes-even-chicken-pox,
I think we are finally turning the corner.
One almost-chickenpox-free (and yes, we got the vaccination, but apparently 1-4% of people who get the shot can still get the virus).
That was us.
Hoping-praying to return to regular writing soon and thank you so much for all of the sweet emails asking–
Where in the world are the Chuppies?
I know it could be much worse, but the last four weeks have really wiped me out and it felt so good to get a full night’s sleep last night.
Today was full of hope and potential and possibility.
“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s…
10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
13 As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.”
Thanks for sticking with us…and for all of the encouragement.
