I always struggle with how much of what I am thinking, feeling, and going through in general to write about on this public blog. This lovely post brought home to me how very private I am on here. To be able to write such an open and honest post is incredible and intense and brave and I cannot do it.
Last night a little one in the Bible class I teach said a prayer that pricked my heart. One bit in particular stuck with me and I have kept going back to it all day today: “Thank You for being there to keep us company, and thank You for giving us Jesus to keep us company.” Awesome, yes? Considering it came out of the mouth of a second grade boy? It is also a sentiment that is very difficult for a single twenty-something, who lives a rather isolated existence, to remember.
