Funny how things can change in an instant and you are left with the breath gone and standing in the boat where the storms are raging all around. Of course we sometimes stand in panic or fear instead of holding to faith as looking to God. I can never forget the times when these ER visits bring a grief and helplessness in the waves of sleep deprivation or frustration. Counting the floor tiles becomes comfort as in remembering that God is always in control even if I am not! I am thankful for friends that bring the support of prayer during these times, they surround us when we feel we can't.
Be thankful in all friends--the storms will be still eventually!!
