A Rough Week

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)

It's been an emotionally rough week.  A coworker's 19 year-old sister was killed in a horrible car accident last Saturday.  We've had serious bullying issues at my school for the past two weeks.  My nephew spent two nights in the hospital having his tonsils removed.  I've not seen my kids in what seems like days because of all the crazy things I have to do in my roles as wife and working mother.  The minute it seems like I can't take any more, I get one more text or see one more Facebook status update with bad news.  I am broken.  I am tired. And frankly, I haven't had time to process the volume of what's been going on this week.  Some weeks are like that.  But as I searched for a Bible verse to include in a condolence card to my coworker, God spoke the above verse to me.  It suddenly dawned on me that in my exhaustion, I haven't really been talking to God.  So I will.  Right now.  And take deep breaths.
