I'm shadowing hard and re-reading posts from the last few days. The combination of the two hurts. One is in my head, the other is in my heart.
We go through so much pain in a matter of a day, a night, a week. I think our pain spills over into our thoughts, and touches those we think are strangers. It touches those we love, and who are our friends. None of us need anymore pain. It hurts to receive it, and it also hurts later in the form of regret when dishing it out.
Piper has a beautiful way of expressing her way of prayer. She calls it "willing" She has willed me to feel better a few times. Now I'm "willing" very hard that everyone be free from this pain, in our heads, and in our hearts. "Willing" all of you to sleep well and find peace. To anyone I've hurt this week with my careless words, I'm sorry.
