Our experience with the life and death of our daughter Bailey has not ended. It does not sit tied up in a nice, neat, and easily understood package. We are not who we were, nor are we who we will be. Heather and I continue to "sit" in a place of allowing and longing to be changed by this experience. We are acutely aware of our desperate need for God. There is an intermingled sense of profound sadness and of genuine worship for Jehovah Shammah (ever present one) in our hearts and in our home. We are taking an intentional season of pause with the hope that we will emerge healthy and whole, both as individuals and as a family. It is our prayer that this wound will heal into a scar that is a visible and visceral reminder of His faithfulness.
