It’s Been A Long Week

It’s been a long week! I am an alumni of Columbine and it has been 20 years, Saturday April 20th since the shooting occurred on campus. It’s been a week of remembrance, not of mourning, for we remember the lost.

It’s been a long week as my mother slowly evaporates before us and I see and hear my father struggling to deal with the hand he has been dealt.

It’s been a long week as the gentle soul that is my husband lost a good friend. This friend was someone who helped him on his path to a saving relationship with Jesus and he lost his battle here on earth and went home to be with his Savior.

It’s been a long week as my bipolar has gotten a stronger hold on me than usual and trying to quiet my head has been a struggle. It’s like listening to the world around you while a TV on constant static plays in the background.

I have the windows open and I can hear the birds chirping, the dog is softly snoring in the corner and I know it was a long week, but maybe this week will not be so long.

“11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
