Is just how much we love them and how much we hurt when they hurt. Today is going to be a tough ministry day and I'm already weepy. We will be most likely losing a young senior saint today or tomorrow as she's decided to discontinue the ventilator after 9 weeks of being critically ill from a ruptured bowel. I feel so sick for her daughter (a dear friend of mine) and her son-in-law (hubby's right hand man at church). I know she is saved but this will not be an easy end for her. She's been off the ventilator for up to 8 hours in the last few weeks but then needs to back on full support because her body just can't handle it but now she doesn't want to go back on. SIGH On top of that, we've got a number of marriages that are in trouble because of just downright sin. These are the days that really hurt. Let's keep remembering to pray for our churches and our people.
