Away for a while
I've not been blogging for a several weeks. I would love to have a story of too much print work, or new equipment. Instead, I just haven't felt much like writing or creating.
Kristin, my sister, died in late October. She was 37 years old, and a 7 year survivor of breast cancer. She was a mother to five wonderful children, and a wife to one of the hardest working men I've ever met. Her life was one lived without reservation. She was quick to share her opinion, and even more generous with her possessions and time. All of these express who Kristin was, but the most important description of Kristin is that she lived to point others to Christ. There are people who know they will see Kristin again because of Kristin; because she led them to a relationship with our Lord and savior by her words, her actions, her very life.
I may not carve many prints in the next few months. I may not post many pictures of my changing studio. I may have overwhelming sadness.
Whatever happens, I will know that my sister has run the race, and fought the good fight. God is glorified, and Kristin can see Him face to face.
I will remain sorrowful, yet always rejoicing.
