Trying to explain the unexplainable

A good friend took her own life yesterday.....

It's very hard to make sense of an act that makes no sense at all. You search for the reasons, you try to explain things, maybe even rationalize. But none of it works. None of it solves anything. None of it helps you get past it.

The only thing I know to do is be in the presence of my friend, her husband, and his kids. I can tell him I love him. I can cry with him. I can sit silently with him. I can pray with him.

If you are in contact with this blog...please pray for the Campbells.

Hi Brick...Roy Stewart here in Kansas City. I happened upon your blog and see that we have a number of significant things in common. Over the years I have tried to remain open to God’s prompts, and a recent one has to do with developing ministries around life’s experiences that may benefit others. With that in mind, I pass along this link to my blog. Please visit it and pass it along as you feel led.

Blessings and thanks,

Roy Stewart
