Wow! That's the only word that can describe some of the people here on Spark. Afraid and devastated of what has been occurring in my life, strangers and friends have been flooding the message boards with prayers for me. Do I feel selfish? Yes. Do I need help sometimes? Yes. Is it wrong to ask for prayer? Absolutely not.
Today, I went to a friend's house and spent the evening with her and her family. It was so amazing to see how a family is there for one another...nothing what I have ever experienced before. It feels so great to be loved the way I need to be loved and around a family of strong Christians.
I came home, utterly exhausted, only to discover that the message I had up on the message boards asking for prayers and support was filled with 14 messages. Words cannot begin to describe what happened the moment I began reading them during this tough time of life for myself. Tears were streaming down my face of pure joy and hurt from the trials, that I could barely read the messages! Things can only get better from here on out. Thanks everyone!
