At a Loss

Today has gone from good, to kind of icky, to downright bad...

Oh, my family (BB, the kids and I) are all ok...but after reading and hearing about my friends and their situations, and my extended family...makes it really tough to want to fall into the arms of the One who's always there to comfort us...

I know that God is there to comfort us, heal our wounds, pick us up, carry us when we can't walk on our own...but today, my heart is hurting so very much that I don't have the words to say to Him.

I have no words to say here beyond that I am hurting so very much for the heartache and sorrow...

I feel guilty too, that I am sitting here with healthy children, a solid house around me, a pantry and fridge full of good food, listening to my kids giggle and shriek with laughter, knowing that my husband is at work, doing something he loves, and making pretty good money doing it...I feel guilty that I am not going through some sort of difficulty right now...not that I'm asking for suffering to befall us...just that I feel guilty that we are in a place of peace and contentment while so many that I love are facing this hurting and despair.

I feel even worse knowing that at least 2 of the families have no Hope to which they can cling...

And now, it's time for my giggly wiggly sticky children to have their naps...and for me to be productive before trying to be happy about watching a baseball game tonight...

Please keep praying...

Count my prayers in! And never apologize for your wonderful life.. Just keep doing what you're doing.. Giving thanks and praying for those who's lives might not be especially wonderful at the moment.. I take comfort always in knowing, "this too shall pass."
