This morning we exhume Vivian's body to be cremated. My family will be with us. My mother and father in law, my parents and my brother. 'With' has never held more meaning than this season of our lives. When others have disappointed me with their 'with'ness, it is the passage in Isaiah (43:2-3,5) I cling to... "When you pass through the waters I will be with you and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Do not be afraid for I am WITH you." Blessed and grateful for my family today.
