My Family

Thank you everyone who thought of me and my family over the last few days. My brother has effectively torn our family apart and my mother and I are struggling to pick up the pieces.

I talked to a friend of mine who is a pastor on Monday night and he walked me through some of the stages of grief. I'm struggling back and forth between immense grief and rage. My mother is slowly falling apart and while I'm trying to do everything I can to help her, I'm not equipped to help her and keep myself from falling apart.

Thank you again for thinking of us and praying for us. If you could continue to do that, it would mean the world to me.

You all are so wonderful for sharing your love. You amaze me with your kindness and love.

Praying for you. Family drama, especially self-destruction like that, is the worst.

I am so sorry to hear that you are having family problems and I will definitely say a prayer for you and your mother and the rest of your family. You deserve better than what you have been having to deal with at work and home!

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." Ephesians 4:2.

I all I can do it pray for you and your family. It is hard going through drama with your family. I can say that it is the hardest. My sister caused a lot of drama to our family and it was hard to hold my parents up when I was going through it to. Just remember that God does not put you through anything that you can not handle.

I have been praying for you, but now I will know more specifically how to pray for your family. My heart goes out to you. Family drama is so hard. Just be reminded that God will be there for you and will walk you all through this. He will never give you more than you can handle, although it may be hard. We will all have trials in our lives, but he is there for us!! Such comfort in those thoughts. Love & blessings from NC!

Still praying. I am sorry to hear it's still rough. God is good, though, and he will let there be sunshine after this rain. Keep on keeping on!
