A day to reflect on all we have. several things have happened to family members, which have made me feel extremely lucky to have what I have.
Last Sunday my cousin Heidi's son Corey was in a terrible dirt bike accident where he suffered terrible head trauma. Heidi since then has had a nervous break down of her own. The stress of feeling helpless to help her son recover, and the disrespect of a girlfriend was more emotionally than Heidi could deal with at this time. many prayers have been sent and will continue for this family. I will go see Heidi today. I spoke to her last night. But the woman i spoke to is a shell and broke little girl searching to come back.
It broke my heart to feel so helpless, as i spoke on the phone to her I knew she didnt know me. This is a great woman of faith. Heidi has faith stronger than alot of people I know. Now we have to get her to dig inside herself and find the faith of a innocent child and bring her back to us. This is a family who would go with out before they would allow others around them to suffer.
Last night i found out their home had suffered flood damage, not sure of all the details yet. They had been staying elsewhere and with money tight for every one, fixing it back up is becoming a struggle. its time the family and community gets together to help a suffering family.
We dont have lots of money there is no such thing as extra, but i do have friends who have the mean to help a little and if everyone can pitch in a little big things can be done. I will see what plumbing stuff they need to help fix the problems there, i have a account where we can charge, I know plywood is needed and sheet rock.
Last night this woman just wanted to come home, to home that is broken but its home. Broken or not its home. Its her security, her safety net.
I spoke to her husband and if any of you have ever talk to a man who is fearing his wife is gone, you know the helplessness he feels, the hurt and pain he is feeling of not being able to do anything. This giant of a man broke down with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He fears for his wife the love of his life. This is a tight knit family where their children are their life. They are helpless to help their child and it devastates them.
prayers are needed in abundance, for the young man who lays int he hospital bed and for the family on the outside trying to heal with him.
So when you think your having a bad day or you dont have everything you want in life. Just always remember there always is someone who is having a tougher time. Someone who is suffering deep within, trapped with in their own emotions,their fear, the stress of life.
Remember always to give thanks in everything. If you wake up today and your healthy, look up and give a thank you. if theres some one around you suffering offer a prayer, a kind word of encouragement. It might make the whole difference in their day. You never know the depth of someone else pain.
Smile you just might be the one to be blessed
Go out and make it a great day
