Today I had an interested meeting with two friends who have known me for a long time. I have let these guys down BIG time and they were both very disappointed and angry at me. They both finally let me have it.
They pointed out my past and present mistakes. They observed how my mind is not thinking clearly. They forcefully challenged me to walk the path before me.
This was hard and at times I wanted to just leave them...but I had no choice...I could tell that they loved me and were seeking my welfare.
I opened my mind and took the bitter medicine. It will do me good.

during the last few weeks, I have received over 40 emails from friends that love me and are seeking to encourage me during this time.
While so many things look bleak and discouraging at the moment. Their words are oil to my soul.

Reinhold and Regula Scharnowsky (Switzerland) (visit Reinhold's blog) have been our friends since 1990.
They are aware of our circumstances and on 10/30 flew here to Colorado Springs to spend time with us and encourage us.
They are now offering us the opportunity for us to stay in their home for a while where they will hold our hands and help us as we walk this new path.
We need His help in working it all out.
