I am back

I am back

Sep 20, 2013

It has been weeks since I have posted anything here, so I wanted to get a few remarks posted simply to let everyone know that I think that I am doing alright—all things considered. It has been 11 weeks since my beloved Roxanne passed away. I will be blogging more soon. In the interim, I just want my readers and supporters to know that I regret that I have not been able to keep up with all the necessary work here.

I am so very grateful for the gifts but I must apologize for the lateness of the “thank you” letters…I am gradually catching up, but it pains me that I must send them out without any personal notes on the form letter. The kind words and heartfelt sentiments and sympathy expressed in the cards from so many of you have moved me deeply, and I wish I could take the time to express it to you personally, but I simply cannot.

In September, I could not write or produce my audio lecture or the Feed My Sheep mailing (except for the letter announcing her death). But I did both in October and now again in November, I am pretty much back on track with both. The FMS went out on time, and the monthly lecture (#44 in the Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom series: The Kennedys, the Mafia and Prohibition) will go out in a week or less. ($8 ppd. if you are not receiving our CDs as part of our CD Ministry.)

I have also been very tardy in returning phone calls—unavoidably—as there is simply a lot on my plate. And then there is email…well, aside from having my office assistant monitor it for donations and Feed My Sheep subscription requests, the rest will have to wait. And truly, friends, if something is that important, you can always phone my office and leave a message to call my attention to your email.

I fully realize that what I am going through is not uncommon. Many readers have experienced the loss of a spouse. Others of you will experience it at some future time that only the Lord knows. I do not know that a person can ever be truly prepared for such an experience. Suffering the sorrow and grief is one thing, but the necessary work of going through all her things at home is a very substantial burden as well.

Plus, Roxanne was an excellent home manager and in that role, she had several necessary home repairs and other projects “in the works” when she passed. I immediately postponed them, but have now had to contact the vendors and contractors and see that the projects get done. And it all takes time away from the office.

So all this is to let my readers know that I am doing okay, that I will be posting more soon, and that I am so very grateful to all of you for your understanding, your prayers and your financial support. May our Father reward you richly and doubly.
