Tough Times

This copyrighted post can't legally appear anywhere else.

The past few weeks have been especially tough for Melissa and me, in our ministry to many needy people of this area.

To preserve the anonymity of those involved, I can’t give you much detail.

But, recently, we’ve had to deal with several people who have either been criminally charged with, or have been victims of:

  • attempted murder
  • felony child abuse
  • felony animal abuse
  • felony elder abuse
  • domestic violence involving adults and children
  • federal tax fraud

Some of those people are adults and children who we’ve known, helped, and/or loved for years.

All of those things, in addition to all of the normal issues that we face 24 hours a day, 7 days each week.

I’m not complaining — our work often gives us many opportunities to make a real difference in others’ lives, and to experience lots of joy and job satisfaction.

But, lately, it’s also brought us a whole lot of stress, and many, many tears.
