Holding Hands

It is strange how much we can communicate to each other now with a hand squeeze. Depending on the strength, length and intensity, we barely need to use words.  Though the suffering is definitely shared among us, Joel is the one right now who "just knows that Jordan will be all right".

What brings the tears to my eyes is to witness Jordan's wrestle with God.  It's crushing.  This is the boy who would ask for prayer before he'd ask for a bandage.  Pain is so disorienting.  Sometimes I can barely believe is is May and we've been riding this wave for so long.

Dear people are praying everywhere with all they know to pray...joining faith with ours.
Some have seen the dead raised, others are brand new at this - but we are all in...where else can we go?
