Numb

Two deaths in the family today.
One my grandfather.
One my relative.
I'm leaving almost immediately.
I feel numb.

Psalm 23:1,2
The Lord is my Shepard, I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in green pastures.

This week, I will lie down in the Lord. I will hide in his green pastures and wait upon Him to refresh and restore my soul...

Anna- You are the best roommate ever. =)

Amber- Girlie, thanks friend for thinking of me.

Aw/oB- We are doing okay and thanks for your prayers.

Dan- Made it home on a crazy red eye this afternoon with a stop in Houston and lots of scraming crying children on both planes. It's good to be home. We are comic relief to one another here.

Dear Colleen,

I just got back to Melbourne and Dan told me of your shattering news. May I offer you the simplest attributes - strength, courage, fortitude and the love and support of my entire family.

You and your loved ones are in our prayers.

David

Praying dear friend. I understand that numb feeling that accompanies the death of a loved one. Cling to Jesus...

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Proverbs 46:1

David- You are so kind. This has not been easy at all, but I am okay...weepy at times, but okay. It's good to be with family now. Definatly not the way I thought it would be, you know?
