This is my new son Asher. He’s cute. He just turned three months old. The sad thing is, he’s had to spend a large portion of his life in the hosptial because he has eye cancer.

It looks like he’s going to be okay. I actually had the same cancer when I was born, and mine was much more advanced when they found it. They just took my eye out; Asher, on the other hand, is going through chemo so we can save his eye and protect him from future tumors.

He’s taking it like a champ, but it’s a rough road for our family. He just got home from a week-long hospital stay after getting a little infection just before his second chemo treatment. Stuff like that happens in cases like his. It’s unpredictable and emotionally taxing.

So, my pastor recommended we take a sabbatical, and I took him up on his offer. XLM is currently paused, probably until next May.

Our Wednesday night Bible study will join the normal Crossroads Bible study. We won’t have any official events. But expect occasional blog posts here.

Don’t worry. We’re not done yet. This is definitely a case of Save and Continue.
