Hard Things

What makes something hard, really and truly?  Today I was going to post about how “hard” an ordinary, seemingly mundane life can be.  Yesterday changed that. 

Yesterday we got word of two things.  First, our friends M & B, who were expecting their first child, found out that they lost their baby.  I cannot imagine that kind of pain.

And then last night, we found out that our good friend Adam "Tex” Merritt was in a terrible roll-over accident.  He is now in the hospital in Little Rock with his back broken in six places, and his spine fractured in two places.  The doctors said that normally people who experience that never walk again.  Miraculously, Tex still has feeling in his toes.

Please pray for M & B during their time of grief.  Also, please lift up Tex and his wife and little girl.  These are truly hard things.  What is my wonderfully blessed life in comparison?

“And we know that in all things He works together for the good of those who love and fear Him, to those who are called according to His purpose.” ~Romans 8:28

To this do we cling.
