"You better be careful down here by the creek because a snake might get you."
I asked the person giving me that awful, unsolicited advice what kind of snakes are seen around there, and he told me water moccasins.
From that moment forward, I’ve struggled with walking near the creek in peace.
This afternoon when I walked down to the water I wondered if the holes in the ground belonged to snakes—Even though I’d never seen a snake near this creek or even really thought about snakes when I was near it in the past— Quickly, I talked myself out of being worried about it and finished enjoying my walk..
I haven’t seen a snake in a really long time, and they are not something I really ever think about— at least it used to be that way.
This evening I stepped outside my door and there slithering across my walkway was a really long snake..
I went from not thinking about it to seeing it in front of me.
It’s crazy how we can grab a hold of a fearful idea, and suddenly, it begins to control our minds or sometimes even makes manifest an experience we might not have had to experience if our attention wasn’t drawn there.
I’ll certainly be praying myself out of this one...
Check on your single friends.
They may not have anyone to bounce thoughts of off.
They may be figuring out meals & eating alone. If they are eating.
They are going to bed alone
Waking up alone.
Spending the day alone.
Going to bed alone and awaking alone day after day after day with possibly no real physical interactions.
They may or may not have people who call and check on them.
They could very possibly be making big decisions outside of decisions they have made in the past due to the extremely unusual circumstances we are in right now.
They might have fears that could potentially be dissolved once given the chance to express them. And if not dissolved witnessed.
They may be lonely. Sad. Scared. Not sure how to reach out or express what they are experiencing.
Maybe even happy. Who knows.
Their life could potentially be a little bit brighter just to know that you cared enough to send them a text or call.
Social isolation and times of uncertainty pushes just about everyone to the edge.
Just think... your kindness could save a life.
Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how high of truths ONE can know.
Being human & feeling deeply takes presidence.
In truth, my heart is hurting right now.
For my friend. For her son. For their family. For everyone of their friends that are hurting right now.
For love that is seemingly lost.
& for the greatest love given freely by God..
My heart is crying for communities shaken, all grandmas, grandpas, wives, husbands, mothers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, co-workers, friends, friends of friends, classmates, classmates families... and so forth and so on... who have lost someone to suicide.
For families torn apart in the aftermath.
For families brought closer together.
For every question answered.
And every question left to wonder...
For faith shattered--
And for faith renewed..
For all of it... and for everyone..
Isaiah— Dearly Beloved, Isaiah...
precious ONE.. may you be at peace now..
May the peace that surpasses all understanding envelop your Momma and everyone else who is grieving the trajectory of their lives forever changed...
May we all be a little more gentle with ourselves and one another...
ifly high little buddy. Fly high.
