Doings and goings

I feel like we have been on the go non-stop since Hunter started his summer class. Ya know, everybody has their strengths and everybody has their weaknesses. He'll be the first to tell ya'll, math is his weakness. Ironically and lucky for him, it's my strength. Alas, wife tutors husband.
My MIL has started the pre-chemo processes and it's been interesting to hear all about the different things she has been doing, will be doing, and can't do. Talk about a bit of lifestyle change but she is one heck of a woman and I know she'll kick this thing to the curb.
Have you ever ran into friends randomly that you haven't seen in forever and it really just did your soul some good? We had the opportunity to catch up with some dear friends of ours while on the go and ya'll, we just couldn't get in enough words to express how much we miss each other. And it reminded me of something - if you're a fellow brother/sister in Christ and you feel like you're in the trenches all alone, YOU'RE NOT. Please know that you're not alone in your battle for God's kingdom.
We found out our church lost one of their youth students to suicide. Ya'll, depression is real. It's an illness much like the flu or cancer - it has to be treated and not ignored. We've had friends who almost succeeded in their attempts of suicide and luckily, did not. They received and are receiving the necessary help needed to fight depression. Do NOT ignore depression, friends.
On a positive uptick, Hunter and I have been fervently praying for God's will in our lives. He's quite the crafty fellow and we know He's got a few things in store for us. We're praying that we're faithful and obedient in His calling for our lives.
Happy Monday, friends! Remember to pray for our nation today and every day. I will not comment on all that is happening because I have seen firsthand how it has been tearing families and friends apart (and I'm not going to humor the devil in his ploys to divide us as a nation), but I do ask that you join me in praying for our nation. We need God more than ever now.
