A friend of mine lost her husband and two young sons. My heart ached for her and her family. All I could do was cry and pray for her. All week my heart and mind had been on my friend. I had dreams of my friend and her family. I would see the faces of each family member in my dream. I continued to pray all week and I still am.
Then, my school. I am not a math girl. At all. In high school, my brother, who is almost three years younger than I, were in the same Algebra class. I know! I cheated off my brother's papers and tests for almost the entire year. Until our teacher moved him to the front of the class. Then I was in trouble. I know cheating was wrong. I know, I know. I was young at the time and desperate to pass this math class, which I did. Thanks to my brother. Right now I am in a statistics class and it is really difficult for me. I pray each time I sit down to work on the problems. By the time I am done my brain is fried and I cannot think. At all. The little things begin to hurt my brain.
We missed church on Wednesday because we stayed home to take care of hubby. So, on Sunday I needed to go to church. I needed to be with my church family. I needed their love and support. I needed their prayers. I needed to hear God's Words. I needed the praise and worship. I just needed Him.
I was so refreshed when my daughter and I left church yesterday. I felt uplifted and emotionally strong again. My heart still aches for my friend and I will continue to pray for her and her family. I am not stronger with my math skills,but I am ready to conquer the last few problems on my assignment. I am ready to be a better wife and mother than I have been this past week.
