All of this ridiculousness going on in our friends lives’ is beginning to drain my energy, the only thing I feel like doing is worshipping with all my heart, screaming out my fears, my sorrow, and my concern for our dear friends. Right now to find a simple joy would be nice. We know there are far worse things in the world, and some of our friends are experiencing those things, Alexis and I are humbled by each event, praising God for his goodness and sovereignty. There isn’t much anyone can say or do in these kinds of circumstances except pray. My heart is heavy, my soul is anxious, my spirit is thirsty, and my mind is confused.
