Overview

An exploration of identity and faith, Seeing Through the Fog invites readers to a vibrant life, an expectant life, a life of joy in each new morning. Pastor Ed Dobson has spent his life preaching sermons, but this book is not a sermon. He has spent more than ten years with a debilitating illness, but this book is not about grief. He has found joy in the midst of sorrow, but this book is not about looking on the bright side. Seeing Through the Fog is about living well when you realize you can’t live forever. It is about having gratitude for each sunrise, birthday, and moment of knowing God more. It is about holding hope when circumstances hold pain. With stories, wisdom and unique content distinct from the popular film series about Ed, Seeing Through the Fog will encourage readers in their own difficulties and give them hope for their future.

    Lifetime Of Memories- Part One (Claire)

    ......2 years later....... I flopped on my bed happily. 'Claire, your father and I decided that you were to move to England with Amanda and Gabbi!' My mother texted me just moments ago. Wait, your probably wondering what happened in the last two years. Well, Edd and I have manahed a long distance relationship. I realize how protective he is of me. He really cares. I sighed and packed all my stuff. "Books" "Clothes" everything. One box left. I picked up an old photo of Edd and I. As childern, we were inseperatable. I was the jokester. He was the brains and leader. I smiled and glanced at the last box. "Story of My Life" I wrote. I paced old books, clothes, and pictures in there. Gently, I placed the picture on the top. I opened up my laptop and logged onto Skype. I dialled his number and his face popped onto the screen. He smiled and waved. "Hi." I said childishly. "Hey you." He said. "Got something to tell ya!" He placed his cheeks in his hands. "Listening." "Amanda, Gabbi, and I are moving to England!" He brightened immediately. "That's great!" He said. "Yeah. Can't wait to see you." I said, smiling. "Got gummy bears?" He smirked. I nodded and held up a bag of Haribo Gummy Bears. He laughed and shoke his head. "Well, I will see my fair princess when she gets here." He said. I smiled. "Bye, love." We both said before hanging up. My cat, Gummy, meowed loud enough to get my attention. I picked him up and he layed in my lap. I'm actually moving back. Wow. ((Wrap!))
