There are no words, only tears with and for you all, and, somehow, rest in Him. Good God, this life is hard sometimes. Lord, have mercy.

The deconstruction of security and rest...a painful theme for too long I know. Holding you close in my heart.

I think of you and K and your family every day. There are parts of what has happened that feel very familiar to me. I have packed up an apartment full of wedding gifts and broken dreams. It is very much a death. There are no words to say except I wish I could sit with you all and grieve with you and hug you. Remember what God has done in my life. Who and what he brought. You were part of that. "Even now in death, You open doors for life to enter." --Nichole Nordeman Love you all.


No words. Much love. I hold your faces tenderly.


The depth and ache for His presence...yes! I love you and pray. So, so much, ugh.


Tracy, I do not know how I stumbled onto your post today except that the Lord brought me here since I rarely even open Facebook. My heart sank and started to ache for all five of you. I wish I could come over and hug your neck and cry with you. I am thinking of you here in Texas and will pray for your tender hearts. I love Lory's quote from Nichole Nordeman - it is so true of you and your family. Love you.

Dear Tracy,
I'm feeling great sadness for you - grateful that you can all grieve together in your home, yet the weight of everything over this year seems heavier for you as Mom. All I know is that Jesus cares and loves you all, and He is our only Hope of a Healer.

Oh, Friend. I have no words. Only tears with you and agreement about Nichole's music. She has a gift. "And the storm may swell, even then it is well." http://compostingtheheart.com/even-though/

Tracy, I am so very sorry. Words don't seem enough. You and your family have been on my heart all week, and I have been lifting you up in prayer. I had no idea...I was just checking in to wish you all the best for this weekend. My heart now aches for you and your precious, precious family...feeling the depth of this grief, with deep, deep roots. Please know you are all so loved...and held...


crying with you all
