This row represents more heartache than the vast majority of us will know in our entire lives...
Sorrow, betrayal, shame...
Hauntings they were never meant to carry.
It's a sobering reality to recognize your home has come to be known as a place of grief for so many.
But still, a place where they grieve deeply day and night.
Each year, we select a verse to pray over our hearts, the souls of our sons, the lives of our children that spin through our home.
This year's ~
But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning; great is YOUR faithfulness.
"The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore, I will hope in Him."
~ Lamentations 3: 21-24
As they weep their bitter tears of sorrow, wondering if it is their faults, searching to see if they are forgotten, we will whisper this prayer into their spirits, begging for the Author of Mercy to make Himself known to them.
Reminding them He is faithful.
What is your verse for the year?
Because He is Worthy ~
