Karen received another call - a familiar call. Her mother's voice choked out the word "coma". Karen again jumped up and flew the two hour drive from her home to be by Dad's side.
She lovingly lays aside our father. She has not left him for a moment as the rest of us too far away wish we could be with him. Yearn to be with him. Tears flowing, hearts breaking, along this merciless journey we all have been thrust upon.
Karen sang hymns and prayed over Dad. Precious support there to help Karen and Tricia. How I pray for Tricia in these next hours and days.
Dad comes to, long enough to whisper a few mumbled words.
Time and The Heart have been silenced in me.
In all of us.
And we Pray.
And we Wait.
Helplessly we Wait.
If this be your time to leave this place, to return to the House of the Lord, go with peace, go with ease, carry the love you are surrounded by with you. Be at ease of pain. Be at ease of illness. Be at ease of worry. Be at ease in life.
Go with Jesus - And Live.
I love you Dad!!
Perhaps more than time has allowed you to truly know.
