tired and out of time

“Photography takes an instant out of time,
altering life by holding it still.”

Dorothea Lange

(Mother’s tiny tea rose is blooming again / Julie Cook / 2017)

I want to thank all of you who have read my posts about Dad—
offering your love, support and prayers.

It was a very long day and night…
our time is running out…
there are now raging hallucinations…
the body is imploding as toxins have their way…
agitation plays havoc…

And everyone is weary…

Your prayers have meant so much as we continue to be sustained by that most Mystical connection…
As I now ask for prayers leading to that eventual peace which surpasses all understanding….

I’ll be back soon…

When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead.
But he laid his right hand upon me, saying,
“Fear not, I am the first and the last,
and the living one; I died, and behold I am alive for evermore,
and I have the keys of Death and Hades.

Revelation 1:17-18

    For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39 KJV)
    thinking of you love Paul

  6. I’m praying for that peace for your dad, you, and all of you who will grieve this loss when it comes, dear sweet Julie!!! By the way, that rose looks like one name William Baffin. Love and hugs, Natalie ❤ ❤ ❤

    Praying for you and your dad. Hard day for me today as our church has two families with relatives though not in our church that died on the same Sunday. That led me to pray for you as well.

    Love the scripture used in your post. He is the Conqueror of death. We only see this side where death is physical; the other side is life eternal.
