Welcome to my "How ARE you?" blog and ponderings

Welcome to my ponderings blog. I started this because there is so much I want to say to so many...family, friends, and the many who were touched by Michael's life and ministry. I love every call and email and card, but drown under a desire to respond to every one of them. My heart so wants to talk to each person, but there are things I must put as top priorities.

I couldn't stand up under the weight of this loss if it wasn't for your prayers and God's mercy. I am so excited for the opportunity to share with you what is going on in my head and heart. God's Words in the Bible leap off the page and into my soul. My goal is not to be profound, but real. Maybe we can learn together to not let grief be such a taboo subject. I will attempt to share often because I like to "interact" with people regularly (but lack the strength to physically respond every day to every contact). Hopefully you will catch a glimmer of my gratefulness and a heartful of my Jesus and how He is walking me and my family through these days.

I love you.

Annie,
what a wonderful idea. We are so thankful for Mike and the legacy he left us. I am thankful for you also. Your amaze me with your strength drawn from faith. Yet you allow us to see your raw emotions as you deal with losing the love of your life. I think God is using you to teach us through this. You are in my thoughts and prayers daily. We love you.

Good morning Anne, I was overjoyed to see this in my inbox. I am excited to read about your interests and what's going on in your life. Thanks for caring enough to give your brothers and sisters more insight into your life, it gives me a little more peace in knowing that you and your family are moving forward but not without the struggles that any loving family would have after the loss of such an awesome Father and Husband. I look forward to hearing more from your on this site.
Sincerely,

Angela Gallegos

You are an amazing encouragement to ALL of us -- and should we ever have to walk this walk, we want to proclaim Jesus' name and draw on His strength and invite His presence the way that you ARE doing. Our desire is to encourage and bless you, but find that when we close our conversations with you, we have experienced a huge blessing of our own because you are REAL and HONEST and speaking TRUTH...
You know I love you -- thanks for the gift of your friendship, and the privilege of praying though this new aspect of life with you and the kids.

I came upon this from the Gifted in Leadership and am looking forward to the privilege of looking into your life with your husband a bit closer. He is at rest in the Lord and I'm sure the comfort of the Lord keeps you at rest.

Bless you.
