This was a rough month. I haven’t posted because, for a variety of reasons, I’ve barely been on my computer. The main exception to that has been time spent writing funeral services, as I had three this month (though I didn’t have the lead role in all of them). I’ve had little energy to write anything else.
It’s not really over; I still need to do what I can to care for and support those who are grieving. I hope there won’t be any more funerals for a while, but I can’t count on that. Even so, I’m starting to feel my energy returning for the tasks I laid aside this month, including writing. New Year’s is a fitting time to restart the engine.
2015 was an annus horribilis for me, but for all that, I’ve seen God’s hand at work. Here’s hoping for gentler blessings this year. Happy New Year, everybody.
