Very moving and humbling post. Thank you for sharing.

Isobel Barber

This resounds so deeply within me.....for you......for Shiela.......for Andrew........for myself now 25 years without my soulmate, husband, lover and best friend.. only possible to bear with the awareness of God’s presence and the assurance of His promises..🌈❤️

Thank you Lisa - words are never adequate, but they are what we have to speak out of the heart.

Thank you Isobel. I loved Peter as a father in God and a friend whose encouragement was one of God's long term gifts into my ministry. We think of you both with gratitude and as blessing in our lives, and think of you often Isobel.


I think of you and your family, my friend that I have never met, as your sad anniversary approaches. And I remember how a friend told me, the second year is the worst. I think the realization sets in that the passing years will not dull the pain, and the loss will never lessen.
But the "... sense of being part of something beyond my own inner world of preoccupations, anxieties, sadness and grief...", that is somehow a balm, be it waves, or trees, or stars in the sky. That connection, at a primal level, to the planet, the universe, the mystical realm that is beyond us and deep within us. That is something, at the least.
