Today I took a day off to "just be." Sometimes I think we need those days to let our spirits catch up with what is happening in the world around us and our own little world.
This week our little world has been aching with a deep and permeating hurt. Some of our "dearest dears" are hurting ...causing us to hurt and ache, too.
Father, please minister to the Allen's this day, tomorrow and forward as they walk a treacherous path filled with stumbling blocks to keep their eyes off of you. Comfort them in their grief, gather them in your loving lap and assure them of your love for them. Give their family and friends an extra measure of insight to know how to best serve and love on them while they are on this long and winding road. Thank you that you walk beside us and hold our hands during the darkest days. We love you.
