The cycle of life

Monday afternoon. I just received word that my pregnant team member had her baby about five minutes ago while her deployed Marine husband was on the phone with her. Praise God! The beginning of life is such a miracle, isn't it? Yesterday she was alone and wondering what it would be like to be a Mama and now she's holding this brand new person around whom she will build her life for at least the next 18 years. Wow.

Yesterday was the memorial service for TCB's partner and friend. It was a difficult day at the end of a difficult week. Many people came to pay tribute to a funny, kind, gentle man who loved his family and brought a lot of joy to the world.

In the midst of life, we are in death...and I find that somehow reassuring.
