Faithfulness

After sharing my story with a church back in April, before moving to St. Croix to help out at Lighthouse Mission, my story was made live for others to see this past Sunday. I watched it from a friend's house and shed a few tears as the person who introduced it shared how he

Pink ukulele brings joy

I had a brilliant blog entry all typed up and then the internet dropped and I lost the whole thing. Another part of island life to get used to...free wifi means compromise, but then again I think its much slower than the states anyways. Today was a fulfilling day at the B

Empty and numb

For the first time I have no desire to blog...to share anything...to even go on with this stupid journey. How ludicrous to move to an island where all it does is isolate you more. People come and go and then there is no one...it gets dark early and the electricity is too pri

Fog

I awake from a fog of loss. Last week a storm blew through and now a light mist lingers over the dew of morning. Seeing for the first time the depth of damage done in the wake of a great storm. Lives touched by the loss of Andy, loss of family, loss of fuzzy kids, loss of se

Choices in grief

Life is full of choices and decisions to live. Those who have experienced great loss can choose to live in that past or be bound by the chains of grief. There are times when those chains serve a purpose, forcing us to face the evil face of grief and cry those tears loss. The
