Life can be impossible...

In the middle of everything I have noticed that life can be impossible and unfair.

My best friend has two kids, Katie is 10 and Caleb is 13. Caleb is currently in the hospital awaiting surgery on his spine on Monday. Caleb has a condition called Dystonia which affects his nervous system and he is unable to hold his head up without his hand and his posture has been severely affected. On Monday they are going to put rods in his back to give him some relief and hopefully straighten out his spine. The surgery will last 8-10 hours.

I find myself trying to figure out what I can do to help my friend and her son. Everything that I can think of doesn't seem like it is enough. Food, diversions for the hospital, and taking their laundry to do just doesn't seem like enough.

They have had to make lots of impossible choices and decisions. I pray that I can somehow be a help in this time of need, and that the Lord would make me a blessing their lives.

If you pray please pray for Caleb and Jeannie and pray hard. They both need it so.
