What a week! A friend lost her mother Thursday. Expected but never ready. A friend talked of how badly he misses her grandchildren and how hard his divorce 25 years ago still is. A lady is caring for her elderly mom who has Alzheimer’s disease. A single mom (or two) is stretched to the limit raising children and working. A nice college age guy was dumped by his “soulmate”, who found another “soulmate”.
Every day we deal with adversity. Sickness and stress. Deadlines and deals. Anguish and ambition. Expectations and disappointment.
But, after Jesus gave the great commission….he reminded us that “I will be there always”
