|Marilyn and Posey, 1986.|
As I write on this Sunday morning I realize the coming weeks are going to be a little crazy. Marilyn, Will & I are leaving for NC today instead of next weekend as originally planned. We do not yet know any of the arrangements for Posey's funeral, we just know we need to get up there. I will be driving back with Will later this week so he can continue working 2 jobs and getting ready for fall courses to begin. Then I will drive back up next weekend and rejoin Marilyn and her family. Beyond that, I am uncertain what will happen or how long we will actually be in NC. There are many of you we look forward to seeing while there, but the schedule of when and where is now much more up in the air. We will be in touch. This blog may be out of commission for a few days, but by the end of the week I should be able to let you know more about what's going on with us. If you have my cell number, please feel free to use it.
I ask for prayers for the entire Steele family, but especially for Posey's loving wife, Marie. Losing a loved one is never easy; losing a spouse after 67 years is almost unimaginable. Her faith is strong, but her body is weak and her loss is great. Please lift her into the Light and ask God to give her strength to carry on. We thank those of you who have been praying since last weekend, and please know that those prayers have been felt both here and in NC. We shall continue to lean on your prayers and a faithful God in the coming days. Be well, my friends.
Because of Jesus,
