Wow. Wow. I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am for all of you. It’s hard to say you feel abandoned by God, when you re-wake up (sometimes I might sneak back in bed after I write these :)) to ten missed calls and a whole load of encouraging comments and emails! I hardly got anything done yesterday for reading over your Scripture references and sending everything along to Jeremiah’s phone. To show love and true, heart-felt concern for (in a lot of cases) a total stranger, says a lot about all of you. We felt showered by blessings and prayers and were reminded (how many times does He have to show us?) that He is always near. Thank you.
Let me also clarify that we suffered no bodily harm in the night. I think that lack of sleep and stress really brings out the flair for the dramatic in my writing. Sorry about that. I got a lot of calls wondering if the authorities had been alerted–surely we’d been robbed at gun-point. No, it was just an all-night onslaught on our hearts and minds….And I think I’m being truthful when I say, I would have preferred a man who wanted to steal our worldly possessions. Besides this computer, he would have been pretty sadly disappointed anyway 🙂
You’ll have to forgive me for not going into more detail on the blog. If you could drop in for a cup of coffee, I’d love to hash through our current heart hurts with you. However, it’s hard to know who all sees this little blog, and I just can’t be more explicit than I already have been. That’s annoying as heck, isn’t it. Sorry.
Now, I’m going to write one of those happy blogs, because guess what–I AM happy this morning!
I love y’all. I mean that.
