I always want to pray for others, but often feel awkward asking for prayer just for myself. It makes me feel vulnerable, or that maybe I haven't done enough and have found myself in a situation that I shouldn't be in. I know these are only lies that I tell myself, yet I would be withholding the truth from you if I said I never felt that way. So here it goes. Today our home was burglarized. I arrived home to find our door completely kicked off the hinges. I ran into the house to look for my little Westie. I was at that moment not concerned about my safety or the condition I found our home in only that my little dog was ok. When I found the little guy upstairs hiding, that is when I noticed what had happened.
Those who broke in came for electronics, it wasn't a big heist. We just don't own very many electronics. But what we have they took. We can get by without these items. It's just a certain feeling of safety I find hard to live without. It has jarred me. I'm not angry, resentful, frustrated, but I am sad. My husband and I have so little, we know that and we're ok with that, but we always felt safe. Not at this moment. I know in the days ahead we will shake this off, and go on with our day to day happenings. Till then, "could I ask?" Could I ask, if tonight you would send a prayer up for us? Would you send a prayer up for them? I will not ask you to pray for specifics. I trust your thoughts. But that only you would think of everyone involved. I thank you in advance, you have always been so kind in this little short time I have blogged. As always, I can't thank you enough for stopping by. ~G~xo
