It's been well over a year since my last journal update here. It's already been 1.5 year ago that my best friend died. It's been almost 2 years since I threw out my last HL map, Trirena. Time really flies. Fast.
A month ago my mother died of cancer. You'd expect us to be shocked, but that wasn't really the case. We've had some time to get used to her absence, since she was in the hospital for the last half year. But most importantly, God has really helped us - and her - through. She was a great encouragement for us and for others, despite her grave situation, and now all of us - me, my father and my two younger brothers - experience a peace that's just not normal for such a situation. We've had a great time with my mother, she was a fantastic person, and we surely miss her. But we also know she's in heaven now because she accepted Jesus Christ, and we know we'll see her again after we die. And God doesn't just stop with these promises, he's also confirming them with this peace we have.
