@gitzengirl and @marycarver

My blog calendar says that tonight I’m supposed to write a post about last week’s trip to Hilton Head. And my calendar also says I have another deadline tonight, and though I have the topic and a couple of sentences drafted [in my head], I will not be meeting that deadline.

I have no words today.

My friend Sara (you might know her as @gitzengirl) is dying. She’s been very sick for a long time, and this week she’s entered the last stretch of her journey.

And I have no words.

Sara’s other friends have been sharing the most beautiful, heart-full, God-honoring, friend-loving words all day long. Comments on her blog and messages on her Facebook page and e-mails shared with mutual friends – they’re all full of amazing words.

And I have none.

My friend is dying, and I don’t understand. I believe. I do. But this is hard. And this hurts. And those simple sad words are all I have.

Please read Sara’s story. It’s beautiful and full of the words I can’t find.

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.

Drop your name and email here, and I'll send you this month's Watch Guide right away!

(Signing up gives me permission to email you. But I will never, ever send you spam or junk. Who has time for that?!)
