Anxiety and cheer

Worry weighs a person down;
an encouraging word cheers a person up.
Proverbs 12:25

Photo notes:
Sometimes, difficult moments turn into days.
And days into weeks.
And we start to feel the weight of the life we chose.
And then...
We find ourselves in the company of those who love us.
Very, very much.
And they understand.
Even when they don't.
And they listen. And reaffirm. And love.
Mostly, love.

That is where we found ourselves this weekend.
Difficult, heartbreaking decisions looming.
Disappointment weighing.
And the arms of our family encircling.

And it was amazing.

Beautiful post....

I too am in that place... the one when you forget that you know how to hope and trust the Lord...

I am so glad you had arms to wrap around you and dear ones to love on you recently!
