24/7 Start Line/ a prayer for Ruthie

Your Small Business Chamber is now offering the Startup Line, call if you want help as you start in a new direction with your work. Also call if you are a C.P.A., lawyer, or experienced consultant who would be willing to volunteer to talk with those who call us. To get help or to volunteer call the Startup Line, (303)861-1447

For my friend Ruthie, as I try to come to grips with the fact that I'll never see you again, never wonder if you calming cheerful presence will elevate the discussion at Socrates Cafe, wishing now I'd been a better friend. 

This prayer is for you and for all of us longing to have the faith of C.S. Lewis, looking back at his friend, and us, after that last lunch storming away, looking back and yelling, just as he'd told us God yells with pain, "Don't you know, Christians never say good-bye."

Grief Will Become Joy

Grief Will Become Joy

So far in my life I have not had many occasions to be close to dying friends and their families, though that will surely increase through the coming years. Five years ago a friend was in her mid-thirties when lung cancer was detected late in pregnancy. She and her husband were valiant throughout, enduring with parents and siblings as they faced the disease, struggling to care for each other and for the baby. It was impossible during that time to believe that grief could become joy.
