My thanks to everyone who came by my book signing at the recent Mitten Synod Assembly in Lansing, MI. I was able to sell some books, and get to meet a few wonderful people who are on their own spiritual pilgrimage. My sincere thanks also to the Synod’s Living Fire Ministries Team for providing me space to do this. Peace, Vernon T.
For those coming to the 2018 North/West Lower Michigan Synod Assembly, in Lansing, from May 20-23, I will be signing and selling my books during part of the event. The Living Fire Ministries Team of the Synod has graciously provided me space at their booth to allow me to do this. If you are attending the Assembly stop by their booth and see what they have to offer, and buy one of my books if you would like to as well.
Hope to see you there. Vernon T.
"Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord. Lord hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications! . . . I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope: . . ." Psalm 130: 1-2, 5
"They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord. Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid . . ." Psalm 112: 7-8a
One of the most difficult decisions that my family and I had to make was when we decided to put my late wife, Judy, under Hospice care. She had two operations to remove tumors from her brain, and already had radiation and couldn’t have any more. Chemotherapy would only slow this new tumor down and would have side effects. We also had endured several years of hospitals, nursing homes, treatments, doctor appointments, and having to do more care for Judy.
The decision we make was both easy and hard. We loved her and didn’t want to see her suffer any more then she needed to. On the other hand by going under Hospice care we were saying that we wouldn’t try anything else to prolong her life. Our thought was to just keep her comfortable. We weren’t afraid of making the choice that we made, but it was still gut-wrenching. When you take part in your spiritual pilgrimage, may you be secure in the Lord when life challenges come your way!
