“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
Henry Nouwen, The Road To Daybreak: A Spiritual Journey
Next week is my monthly social media/blogging fast. I will be offline all week, but reachable via email. I will be praying for you, my friends, during this time of quiet and rest. If you have a prayer request, feel free to submit it to me HERE, I’d love to lift you up.
