I was talking about this with Julie last night and compared it to the "phantom limb" phenomenon that amputees report. It's like having a limb that's been removed, and yet sometimes your brain still thinks it's there and responds as if it is. To then have to consciously remember that it's really not just makes the loss of it all that more acute and difficult to bear.
I guess the take home message of this post for any former Via Christus folk reading it is that I miss you guys and I miss our community. I hope y'all are doing well and are each finding, um, replacement limbs? to take the place of what we lost. I know that some of you are having more luck at that than others. Know that our prayers are with all of you.
