This morning was one of those mornings.  I received a text.  I was shocked. I was so broken.
The song that has the line in the lyrics that says...."break my heart for what breaks yours".  I felt like I was experiencing it this morning full force. 

This week I was on Facebook and received a message from a sweet friend that her husbands brother had taken his life. No one saw it coming. No one had any idea.  They were at a loss. His 14 year old son had found him.  They did find a journal and evidently he had been planning this for a while.  The precious family and all of the questions that surround such a situation as suicide, I can not imagine. That precious young man who found his Dad. Oh, I just pray for them.  I was just heart broken.

I went on Facebook last night and one of my BFF's from high school had changed to "divorced".  I have been praying and praying for her family and so hoping it would not come to such but it has.  Oh, my goodness what a gut wrench it was.  She has 2 sweet and beautiful children.  I'm just praying for healing and strength.

This morning I was dropping off Kaleb at school and received a text.  Another sweet friend from high school.  His wife said she wasn't happy and it was over.  He's hurt and angry. My heart just ached for him.  It was just a shock. I had been praying for his marriage as well.

As I sit and write this, I'm overwhelmed with hurt. I don't have a clue about the suicide and how to even come close to praying for them but the Lord knows my heart. For my friends, D and T, I hope they know that I will be praying for them in the coming days.  The Lord is in control and just pray that they will rest in Him.  I will be praying!!!!!! Love Y'all!!!!!

Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."

This verse has helped me so much as I am still broken over my friends passing. Just know the Lord is close to you and to those families during this time.

My prayers are with you all as well.
