January 2014

Sent from my iPhone

It has been a long time since I have written anything for blogs- or updates....
It has been yet another eventful year. 
I try to live my life open to God's leading and responding to where He calls or sends.  I get it wrong sometimes.  Yet I trust that God honours this desire of my heart to serve Him, and will work good out of it anyways.
Three months into a new marriage, forged despite the fact that we each have children and  grandchild(ren) from our loved ones that died and despite the fact that I am a Mennonite and he is a Catholic- or that I am Canadian born and he is Polish......
I have been following where I am led.
Thinking of the wise men who followed a star to see where the Christ was born, I wonder about all the choices they made along the way.   A star in the sky and same ancient texts are hardly like a printed off Google map- and I bet their journey wasn't absolutely direct.  And, if you think about it, if they hadn't involved King Herod- maybe all those 2 year old boys wouldn't have been killed when Herod wanted to eliminate any future 'competition'.   Following a star in the East – ended up messier and with ripple effects that they couldn't have anticipated.
Another thing I'm thinking of.... those wise men who travelled that journey.... while they were gone- what of all the friends and family- and people who were used to having their input in their lives?  What of all the input the wisemen were used to having from all those at home?  Not available. 
In my new journey- that has brought love- a partner- and challenge into my life.... I am often missing dear ones, missing the familiar.  Broken traditions,  awkward new relations, a vastly altered schedule and available energy... a little of the ripple effect of this journey.  I am sure that I have miss-stepped along the way.   Change is hard on everyone- and none of us lives in a vacuum.  There is a lot for me AND my new husband to get used to.
So, friends, family,
forgive me where I get it wrong.
I am following the best I know...

October 2013

Dear friends and family,
This post is to  let you know I am starting a new blog.  I have deeply valued the chance to share our journey through Loren's illness, passing and time of grief and healing with you.
God is and was and will be present.  Thanks be to Him- the source, sustainer and destination of life.
I and the ones who administered this blog no longer have access to add any guest comments and, on October 9th I married again!
It is time to start fresh.
Andrzej Leligdowicz was also a widower, with two grown daughters, a son-in-law and a third grandchild on the way. Where once I was part of a family of 5, now with my 3 girls married and one grandson, joining with Andrzej's family- we shall be quite a few!
If you would like to follow me – though my posts may not be frequent- my new blog felicia Dyck and family  is at feliciadyck.blogspot.ca
with love.... felicia (still Dyck....but Andrzej's Mrs.  nevertheless   )

But deep inside I know You breathe....

A baby's breath
.... caressing cheek
oh  Wonder,
You are born
The sun, the grass
.... the sky I seek
at every early morn.                                                        

And deep inside 
I know You breathe
I know You're close beside
Connected with 
all other love
Whatever may betide
A raging wind
....ice pellet hail
the Thunder
and  the storm
The rain, the blast
....destruction's path
my heart want to inform
But deep inside
I know You breathe
I know You're close beside
Connected with
all other love
Whatever may betide

Dianne has left a new comment on your post "June 10":

Just yesterday I spoke of you, and Loren, to Brian. Reminding him of 3
years past... We have not forgotten you. Praying for continued
healing....and cherish your little bundle of joy!

June 10

Three years have come and gone since you slipped into heaven- agree with God- that yes- this work was over. You loved us so!
But you were God's dear child and He was calling. 
The missing you has been hard and each of us battled that differently. 
But healing and some new growth has begun. 
A little guy with a big name has arrived. In this past week alone- big challenges and bigger grace. 
The new little guy:
Grateful for some other dear ones who had some health concerns but were carried through them. 
And marvelling at the work of grace in people's hearts. 
Remembering you - love.

For Loren

Headed to the park today. The girls and I. To celebrate Loren in a place he loved. Remembering- together. A letting rest- together.
