Hospice at Home

This past Thursday, April 1, Andrea began hospice care at home. She will no longer go to MDA and wait in lines for blood draw, doctors or tests. The nurses and doctor will come to her and J's house to keep Andrea comfortable. We pray daily for strength, mercy and grace.
As Andrea focuses on God and her salvation through Christ, she continues to pray for each of you in the obstacles that you may face whether they be physical, emotional or spiritual. We thank you for your love and friendship.

Praying... lifting you all up. Knowing that God is more than able.
Feeling... unable to put into words the emotions of our hearts.
Trusting... that you know our love, but more importantly that you are wrapped in the love of our Father moment by moment as you rest now.

Thomas Keiting has written that the human being, fundamentally, needs three things: a firm foundation, love and esteem, and power/control. All three are found in Christ, God and the Holy Spirit in that order. I know you know that and are continually drawing nearer to our Father's arms. And I know this is as much about your family as it is about you. You all remain in our prayers and thoughts. Allen Thyssen

First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!
