After 13 years, this is our last blog post for Alpha Omega Arts (2008-2021). We are grateful for your fellowship, but it’s time. For what? God knows. What we do know is that a year ago, we celebrated mom’s 82nd birthday, with her, by racing up the nine-story Art Climb at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Today, in her memory, we did it again. In Verneida’s final months, she pushed us to stop “pretending” and to actually go start a new climb. To let go and climb with God. Amen
