E.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d……but thankful!

Let me just tell you, I’m e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d……
As many of you know, my 12 yr old boy remains in the hospital…..and as I feel like we aren’t really gaining answers, I am emotionally, physically, and spiritually drained!
(lots of  ideas….no answers)
My heart has felt empty each evening as I leave him, so empty it is almost hard to focus on the other boys that are home and still in need of a mother.
“O’ Lord…..where are you?”….. seems to be the constant echo from my being this week.
and yet, I remember (or am gently reminded of these scriptures…)
“Fear not, for I am with you.” Isaiah 41:10
“Be still and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10
“Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.” (Psalm 42:5)
I’m exhausted, so exhausted I don’t even want to write here, but at the same time it is my refuge, if even for a moment.
And I want to thank my readers….
Thank you for lifting me up…
Thank you for not judging…
Thank you for sharing my story to YOUR readers…
Thank you for believing when I can’t…
Thank you…
Although these words could not possibly resonate my true gratitude, I pray you get my heart!
~In Christ

  3. You are all so very loving….knowing I have prayer warriors (even in the world of Cyber friends) helps more than y’all could imagine! We serve an Awesome God, I am fortunate to have a 12yr old that also believes that.
    Thanks again!

  4. As I once again sit in the early morning hours reading and listening to spirital music and readings from you blog I feel some guilt for not being able to be there like I wanted to be and should of been able to be, yet fall l short once again. There are so many things I would like to tell you so you might even be able to understand me better these days and why everything hit me so hard this year, exspecally with this one grandson getting sick and needing extra medical care. These are things I feel would be best said when we get thoes few luckly times we get to have some one on one time,and I love those times with you. But Today all I want really say is I love you and am always here for you and that wonderful family you have blessed my life with. I know I have not always been there in the past, how ever please if you can’t trust me fully on this, then trust God,that He has restored your mother to some kind of true wholness and usfulness in your lives. Just so you know I had a very hard week and joy was only restored once I was able to see you,hug that one grandson, and see that the rest of your family back in action picking, playing, and joying their brotherhood once again. So over and over it rings in my heart and soul “Troubles don’t last always,and joy cometh in the Morning”. May joy has been restored is seeing you all reunited at home. I love you all and keep you in my payers day and night…<3
