The kids and I continue to do amazingly well...emotional times mixed in with God's sustaining strength and courage and even joyfulness. I do not understand exactly how we got from there to here, but I am thankful.
Here is one of Caley and Luke's favorite hymns.
Hymn to Joy (Beethoven)
Words: Henry Van Dyke
Joyful, joyful we adore thee
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee,
praising thee, their sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
fill us with the light of day.
