“Like a Bridge Over Troubled Waters” was a Simon & Garfunkel song that became very popular about the same time Weyburn and I were married in 1970. I no longer remember when I heard it first, nor do I know how the words became etched in my mind because we did not listen to music radio stations while I grew up, or in the home that Weyburn and I established. However as a Christian, the words resonated with me in the fact that I knew my bridge over any troubled times was my Lord Jesus Christ.
Recently a verse from Isaiah came to my computer via email in a beautiful visualized form.
Isaiah 43:2 "When you go through deep waters, I will be there."
Because of mom’s present journey with cancer, I have latched onto this verse. I have made it my screen saver, and take comfort in it each time I read it.
God is with us as we have the privilege of caring for mom each moment of every day that He leaves her in our care.
I am spending extra time in my sister’s home helping to care for mom. Because of this, I am going to take a break from posting blogs to this website. However, I am writing my thoughts regarding our journey in our CaringBridge website. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jeandouras
We would be honoured to have you join us there and follow God’s work in our lives during the last days mom is with us.
Thank you for your prayers and interest in Discerning Hearts Ministry. Thank you for your prayers for our mom.
I expect to return to writing here in a few months.
Allow God to be your guide as you go through your “troubled waters.”
