Instantly recognizable as what the archbishop with the speech impediment in the Princess Bride's wedding scene proclaims (the whole quote-translated- is, "Love, TRUE love, is what brings us together today), and though that occasion is a wedding, it applies to other situations as well, like what is going on at my house right now.
The clan has gathered... all of our children are here with all of their children and all of our siblings and extended families have clustered in.
These blogs were written almost exactly a year ago:
My DH is dying.. I can euphemise it, but it is what it is.. He has been diagnosed with ALS for over a year, and sick even before that, but his time to evacuate his failing, deteriorating earth suit is coming. He is at peace with the Lord, and ready to face eternity, but of course, as those who love him, it's not easy for us watching him go.
But it's true love that brings us together, honoring and loving him, and comforting and loving each other. God is still in control, and it His true love in Jesus Christ that will bring us through and bring him Home.
I've reminded them that we are not having a Death Watch, but a Bon Voyage party...
