A Thought For Someone

From Brent

This was my thought as I sat quietly at my desk tonight. For whatever it may mean to someone out there, for whoever it may speak to:

The crucible of suffering is silently shared with kindred heart, knowing eyes and unspoken words by those who have walked in the valley of the shadow.

It’s something you never wish for... but the aching seed that takes root in the darkness of trial becomes a priceless and eternal harvest of blessing upon the dawn of a new and compassionate morn from Him who is Faithful and True.

Thank you for listening to that quiet voice that says "do this, it will mean something to someone." Your words mean more than I can explain without writing a novel in your comments.

Sending ((hugs)) to you and your whole family--especially Abby.

I, too, live in Oklahoma. This storm picture is gorgeous. Oklahoma is the ONLY state where people stand oustide watching the storm instead of hiding in their bathtub away from the storm. Your family is truly a blessing :)

Dear Brent,

Very well said. We are a family in Christ also struggling with cancer in a child. We understand.....
