Encouragement When It’s Needed Most

The last time I saw my dad in his new home, he asked me if I’m a teenager.

I shook my head. “Do I look like I am?”

He scrutinized my face. “Are you 25?”

“You’re getting closer, Dad!”

My dad is legally blind and he has dementia, but I still took it as a compliment. 🙂

    Oh Taryn— I cry every time I read your posts. You capture such a depth of the the sadness you are going through and the height of the joy The Lord gives you in His gifts of beauty ,calm and peace — all going on at the same time. He is with you every step of the way and a huge comfort. And every step of this journey brings such a pain in your heart and soul like you have never experienced before……. And it is so difficult!!! Thank you for sharing these moments with us as we pray for you ❤️
