The Long Silence
In the midst of an affliction of turmoil, I took an impromptu web fast. I think it was just the thing, to set down the distractions of the internet and tend some household projects that had been left undone, and to gather my thoughts and take spiritual appraisal of where I am and where I’ve come from. It didn’t begin well. I’ll likely go back and share that soon, but for now I’ll just wave hello and assure you that we are still committed to this apostolate the Lord has called us to. Our continuing struggle in the Sealey household is the lack of sleep, with one or both twins up during the night or the four year old waking screaming to use the potty, four or five nights out of seven. It has been a very long 20 months since the arrival of our twins! Last night was a good one, so I’m pushing my ability to put two thoughts together and post something hopefully coherent. There is nothing like suffering to reveal what is going on interiorly. These many months of sleeplessness have indeed whittled both Brian and I down to the crux of our being and encouraged us to deal with things that we had avoided facing before. Not that we’ve completed that task, by any means. But it is well begun. Hopefully, this silence is now broken and I can return to a more regular posting schedule, as the Lord leads.
