The past few days have been stressful and hectic for our little family. While Michael seemed to be the one really dealing with all the pressure, I was there with him helping him deal with all that was coming at him.
Needless to say, we have both been completely drained! Mentally, physically, emotionally, etc! There were several times (daily almost) that one or both of us cried because of the amount of energy it was taking to deal with everything going on in life (family, work, school, etc) at this particular moment! This week has not been easy!
Last night, however, God truly provided refreshment for us through His church!
Our church only has Wednesday night meetings on the 1st Wednesday of the month (which happened to be yesterday). We went around 5:30 for dinner and stayed through the 7:00 Ministry Update until around 9:45.
As we were walking to our car Mike asked, "So how do you feel?" My answer was that I felt totally and completely refreshed, like I had just been rained on. It was an amazing sense that I cannot really ever remember having before. God's people were so uplifting, even though they really had no idea what we were facing and how much we needed encouragement. God knew and He provided that through the body!
