This is one of those random posts...more about just being able to write it all out...a way to get all the stuff of life into tangible thought. As a side note...Erin this picture is especially for you! Our kids may have rescued the craw fish the first time around... but Scott had other ideas. Poor lil' craw fish.
I was searching my files and found this image taken just a few weeks ago...it jumped out at me.... it resonated with my soul....I somehow could relate to that craw fish just trying to stay afloat and survive.
The burn of life can sometimes scorch us. It has been a full year of trail, lose and uncertainty for so many loved ones and family members. The ache is deep...yet the river is wide, if only the craw fish could have hid better in the deep waters?
Would it then just be snatched up by the next disaster, storm... perhaps bird of pray?
For he has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help. Psalm 22:24
I will continue to trust that the Lord hears our cry's for help...prayers on behalf of my family continue to be coveted.
