I have always been a writer.  For most of my life I haven’t written for people to read.  I put pen to paper because I was made in the image of a God who used words to call this world into existence, and He used words to call me to Himself.  Before I was formed in my mother’s womb He breathed into me a mind and heart for reading and writing.  Out of all the talents He could have given He chose a spirit that yearns to take twenty-six symbols and turn them over and over again into pages of what I’ve never considered an ordinary story.  Once in a while, when I would let them slip out into the universe, people told me what I wrote was a gift and asked me if I would please do it more.   I’m just now barely brave enough to put my name on it.

    Dan, wow! Thank you for sharing these words, your heart, this piece of your journey. I am deeply grateful to have met Monica in the canyon so many years ago, to know (from afar) your family, to pray for each of you nearly every day. I cannot imagine the load you shoulder caring for your medically complex family, or the load my husband shoulders caring for ours. Yet one day, it will be so different … eternity lies just beyond the veil. Till then, we cling to hope, courageously taking each next breath. Happy Birthday, Dan!

    Dan, thank you for sharing your heart. I am thankful to have met your family through Cindee Snider Re and continue to pray and give support to your family. Husbands have a mighty load and I want to remind you that God has this. He will give you the strength and grace you need. Do not despair of failing. You are doing your part and do not think of what the world’s goals and dreams are. You are doing the things that belong to you and your family.
