It’s been a little while since I posted on the ole blog, but I wanted to break my silence to share some things that have been on my heart over the past 24 hours.
Yesterday, we received what felt like a massive amount of bad news from several friends and family members. We heard from one family member, then another, then a friend, then a co-worker. This morning, things feel… heavy. I just don’t have any other word for it.
We have friends and family that are facing illnesses, sudden deaths, news that they feared the most, and when I think about all of this, combined with what 2020 has been so far, it reminds me of a very important truth—we need each other.
We need each other, not to tear one another down, but to lift each other up. The scrapes and bruises of life are hard, some stinging more than others, which is why we need friends and family to stand beside us and walk with us and encourage us. I really believe that’s who God has called us to be. We were never designed to be alone, whether we think we were or not.
Stay safe, friends!
