Joining with the Five Minute Friday crew to write for five minutes without editing on a given topic. This week's word is gather.
It's been a week. A week since our guesses were confirmed. A day when everything changed and yet stayed exactly the same. And when I shared our news, everyone gathered around us in their own ways.
The comments you sent on Facebook and on the blog brought me to tears. You emailed. You texted. You called. You asked, "What can we do to help?"
I have felt well loved this week as you have gathered around me in your own ways, even from far off. I have been wrapped in your words and your hugs and uplifted by your prayers.
The tears come easily, but that is nothing new. I cry because that's what I do when I feel something deeply. And these tears? I know they are gathered, too.
"You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in Your bottle." Psalm 56:8
