Construction Ahead

I have not disappeared. In fact, I am very much here in the flesh! (In the flesh, indeed).

The adjustment to "single" life has been difficult. No wild parties or bar hopping evenings. Some loneliness, sadness, mourning. And, some great time to myself, too. All rolled up together.

Prayers go out to Bigg, struggling with cancer and undergoing chemo. It's so unfair!

I am buoyed by my Internet friends and new acquaintances here in town. I have been blessed with a place to stay, for now. More blessings are on the horizon for a more permanent residence. I am overwhelmed. Really.

Tonight, I have my girls for dinner. We are still working out details fo sharing time with children. The youngest just had her 16th birthday. the oldest has her 19th in just a few days. They've been great.

Still some very rough places. But the beat goes on! More later.

Shalom & Cheers, "Joe."

thanks for checking in. Silence always raises doubts and concerns in the North Woods...

Here's wishing you the very best of good times with your children. They do complicate the picture, but they are also what makes the picture real and worth viewing... even, I suspect, for you. No?

Benedicamus Domino.

I'm glad to see that all is well and that God is still in his heaven. Be good to you and everything else is icing on the cake.

Thanks for keeping us informed. It's difficult when things are amiss but that's why we are here and reading. A blessing on your head!

The disjoint between married life--with all the people jittering in and out of it each day as everyone goes about their business--and single life, well, it can be disorienting. It's not bad, mind you--we were all single before marriage. And we were fine with it. It's just that in the intervening years, I suspect, we become used to family and its social network being an easy fix for maintaining our own independent social life.

Glad to hear that you are moving along.
My advice is to keep your relationship with God. I've found that He helps me in all my struggles.
