In Times Of Need

A nice chill in the air, rain pounding on the window and a cup of coffee next to me that has not been forgotten about or reheated 2-3 times. A perfect day to some but all I hear is quiet.
I got word last Wednesday from my College Roommate and very close friend, that her son was in a drowning accident and in the PICU. Tears filled my eyes as I heard the story unfold. My heart ached for Rebekah and I knew that I had to find a way to be there for her during this hard time. We do good together and we do hard together. Thankfully, another friend thought the same thing so we got a plan in place last Friday and are leaving for New Orleans this afternoon to love and support Rebekah and her family during this journey. Precious Graham is a fighter and is defying all odds but they still have a long road to travel with his recovery. So thankful for a God that performs miracles and is faithful in times of need.
However, this would not have been possible with out Ryan encouraging me to go and the awesome support of both Grandparents that will jump at the opportunity to watch Georgia Kate. Tyler is thrilled as he will get to ride the bus to the Administration building where Ryan is the rest of the week. Tyler LOVES being a bus rider. I'm sure both of my boys are looking forward to some special guy time together.Georgia Kate left yesterday afternoon, and boy did we miss our girl last night. It was very quiet last night as it is right now, and right now I will take loud and a mess over quiet.
 But with that being said I know I need this quiet today as I prepare to love and just be there for my precious friend. So thankful to God for preparing this day for me and allowing the opportunity to leave home for a couple of days.

 Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
