Life is a…  People have connected the experience of life to many many different things for as long as life exists.  I’m no different.

I have for years and years viewed life as a continuous and extended yet twisting triangle.  At any given point and time 2/3rds of life is on the upside, 1/3rd down.  We constantly are moving along a side of this triangle for extended periods of time.  Every so often we approach an edge and yet don’t continue over the edge.  Whether it be our choice or life circumstances we end up staying on the side of the triangle where we have been spending the most recent part of our life.  Then, things change.

We go to another side of the triangle.  There is a period  of change and transition.  We are living on the very thin edge between two sides.  It is unstable.  It is thin.  There is very little margin or comfort.  You are there for a highly variable amount of time.  You are teetering between two distinctly different stages/periods of your life.  If you have a high need for security this feeling is horrific and not the least bit comfortable.  Even if you are a big fan of change and don’t need things to always be the same it is a time where you know it’s kind of like living without a safety net and all things may fall to pieces at any given moment.

Lastly, you don’t know if you are transitioning from one up side to another or to a downward/ “upside down” third of the triangle.  You “hope” that the transition is to a good side.  You are pretty sure that it’s not going to end bad.  Yet, you just don’t know.

Whether that makes sense to you or not, I am sensing that in a couple of different areas of my life I am approaching one of those edges.  As you might guess, Trey is the main figure in one of them.  Short term we have the most glorious vacation planned and are super excited to go.  When we come back we have all but decided to go ahead with the treatment in Philadelphia which will hopefully give us a good bit more “healthy” time with him in the future…we hope.  Yet there are other things that I have not disclosed in parts of my life that seem to be moving very quickly and towards some tremendous changes that will impact most every facet of my life.  Twisting triangles indeed.  It should be very interesting.

Sorry for the cliffhanger but more details will be coming in the very near future.  In the meantime, thanks so much for being here with us.  If you feel like you are in one of those stages (or on a bottom side) just hang on, at least you never really fall of the triangle (at least I don’t think you do.  No, it’s my analogy…you don’t).


Here’s How You Can Pray for Trey This Week…

To My Audience of One – Cathy Muscara

Trey is soooo….

Oh my!  Yes!  Trey is sooo….everything!  🙂

When Trey is happy, he is sooo happy!  There is nothing like the smile on his face!  🙂
When Trey is unhappy, he is sooo unhappy!  Forget Mama…If Trey ain’t happy, ain’t no one happy!
When Trey is in love with a new girlfriend who may have been visiting for the weekend, he is sooooooo in love!  🙂
And when Trey fights hard, he fights sooooo very hard (whether he is fighting his parents or cancer!)  🙂
And that is just how God would have it!  God’s power and strength and might know no end, and Trey and his family and Team Mitlo One have that same spirit!

Let’s continue this One Faith, One Family, One Fight for Trey!  🙂

Our prayer this Trey Tuesday for Trey and Jay and Rachel as decisions are being made:
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience” Colossians 1:9-11
