It’s that time again. Time to join the group over at Kate’s blog and write for five minutes, unedited.
Today’s word is HIDE.
I want to hide today. Daddy’s gone. He’s no longer suffering. And while I am thankful that he’s not in any pain anymore, I hurt all over. It makes me want to hide away under the covers.
But I’m trying. I know God gave us both happy emotions and sad emotions, and I’m trying very hard to give myself room to grieve, to feel the emotions and the pain.
But I also want to hide them and stuff them away. Because it hurts to feel them. It hurts to think about not having both my mom and my dad here. I keep thinking of all these “what if” questions. There were so many things I needed to ask.
So, here’s a song that goes with “Hide.” It was the first thing I thought of last night. It’s one of my favorites.
And also, here’s a verse that has brought me much comfort before. Because God does not hide from us. He knows.
You keep track of all my sorrows.b]”>[b]
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book. Psalm 56:8
That’s all I have right now. I’m drained both emotionally and physically. My family could use your prayers as we travel to Nashville. Thank you.
And this is a saying of my dad’s. I hope you enjoy it.
