I just wanted to take a moment and say thanks for all those who hit this thread and prayed for me these last three days. No there’s nothing physically wrong. My kids aren’t sick and I don’t have cancer or a splintered femur or a head injury—though I may act like it sometimes. It’s just…

It’s just sometimes things are hard—like hardened steel hard. Like bedrock hard and its tough and the only thing that gets you through is the Word and prayer and the kindness of ordinary people.

Hey, I’ve got four kids so I’m often broken on their behalf. I don’t think that’s going to get any better as they grow up either.

But there are these days—gratefully few and far between—when I’m just poured completely out and I can’t get anyone to answer the phone and the ‘skies are brass’. And that’s when I have to ask for prayer.

I hope not but you probably know what I mean.

So I’ve put all of you on my prayer list and I’ll be lifting you up too. I want us all to think about lifting each other up each morning. So when you hit a blog, pray for the writer and the commenter. It does more good than you know.

  1. I understand. Sometimes you just run out of steam and have to take some time for yourself before you have anything to give to anyone else.

    I’m glad you’re doing better.

  2. You pegged it. For me THAT is a disaster.

  3. Boy, can I relate to what you shared. I love the idea of praying for blog writers as we read their blogs.

    I’m glad you’re doing better, too.
