Through it all

Through it all

Through the darkness that rolls off the mountains and bears down on my heart like a vise.
Through the opaque fog so thick that blinking eyes see only shades of gray.
Through the pain that pierces my heart and fills my eyes; white hot, lingering, then gone.
Through the throbbing ache of a thousand days of wasting muscle and fading dreams

A light shines.

It is you.

Thank you.
I love you.


  1. You have such a GIFT for expression, Bill! As I read your words, I am once again in awe of your ability to become raw and express such deep emotion. All of us reading along reach out a hand for you to hold. We shed tears with you and offer a shoulder to lean upon. You are not alone, my friend! You and the girls are so very loved.

  2. From miles away you are prayed for, you are surrounded by the love of God and His endless provision. Let us intercede for you when the words seem to be lost in the wind and flurry of emotions. Ephesians 3;16 "out of His glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner being."

  3. Sending you fierce and sincere love.

  4. I'll carry your pain on my short walk today, along with my mother's memory; a part of the thousands of memories that will be walking to support the cause, here in Austin. Stay strong, breathe deeply, let go when you can. God can take it from there.
