Be completely humble and gentle; be patient,
bearing with one another in love.
Ephesians 4:2 (NIV)
Dear Blog Friends,
We find ourselves travelling once again to assist our family with caregiving needs. This will be our longest trip yet, and I'll miss being here with you.
I have written ahead for some days, and reposted pieces on others. We're not really sure what day we travel home, but it will be after May 1st for sure.
We carry this verse from Ephesians with us so we can not forget that decisions in this situation are not ours. Our role is merely one of providing respite for the caregiver, and care for my husband's brother. Decisions about his care and their situation are solely his wife's. It is hard not to interject your own thoughts, feelings and opinions. And I would ask for your prayers for us in this area.
Our desire is to be humble and gentle, patient, and loving while with them. It is not an easy task, especially for my husband whose brother is slipping away mentally and physically.
Thanks for being such good friends -- see you soon!
