***PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ANY CARINGBRIDGE DONATIONS GIVEN ~ WILL ONLY SUPPORT CARINGBRIDGE WEBPAGE DEVELOPMENT *** We want to have a tool for sharing our Journey with our loved ones as we face some daunting circumstances. Robert (and I, Karen) will be writing updates for you as we navigate these waters with my ongoing health challenges. No one can possibly know what the future holds when setting out to walk through life with one another. Robert was aware ~ when we married in January of 2016 ~ that I had a genetic condition which causes my body to create defective collagen. But we had no idea what was ahead... We’ve received so very much love and support through you, dear friends/family. This is a love letter to you ~ to remind you how very much we appreciate you, love you, and need you. I have an intent on my heart to write updates that include what I have been studying in my quiet time. I’m finding a treasure trove within the gift that God reveals to us in His names. These are not the creation of men who were trying to define or describe what they wanted. Rather, in His timing, God revealed His holy character through the most meaningful and beautiful of names. I write to strengthen myself. I hope to encourage you ~ as I believe these names show us His inherent greatness. If this portion ‘isn’t for you’, please simply glean by. But I hope you will look upon these names, and ask the One who bears them to come into your heart and strengthen and love you along with me.
