Hi, friends. I’m posting to give an update on my health and ask for prayers and support. I have been dealing with rather serious sinus issues for almost a year. After multiple unsuccessful treatments (antibiotics, steroids, allergy meds, etc.), I am going to have sinus surgery. I saw a specialist this past Monday, and he agreed to do the surgery.

See, what a morning, gloriously bright,
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce, “Christ is risen!” Continue reading “Christ is Risen!”
