Prayer

Please pray for me.
And for my "enemies" too.
I've been praying all day.
I am in the midst of a conflict now.
Praying for wisdom to do the right thing by Kenny.
Praying for courage to be honest, even when it's hard.
Praying for discernment to know what the objective issues are.
Praying for kindness to temper the honesty.
Thank you for praying with me for guidance and for God to be present in this entire process.

  2. Oh Michelle
    Pray I will with all my heart and soul. I know God will direct you in the right direction and I know you will make the right decisions. God listens and guides. I think Dave will lead your heart as well and tell you what is best for Kenny. I love you and hope that peace will fill you and rest will aid you.

  3. Michelle,
    Sounds to me from your entry that you are already well prepared for making a thoughtfull decision. However, if you need someone to listen and just bounce ideas around, I would be more than willing. Leading with your heart can be risky but you know it will always be the correct decision (of course tempered with a bit of common sense).

  7. Michelle, You know I'm with you 100% and love and care about Kenny. Saw him up at Bluewood last weekend. It was nice to see him. I don't know what your stuggle is but I do know personally when things were so difficult with Ben that if I prayed and let God do and lead it all fell into place. It is so hard for me not to plan it all out, be in control. I pray that God will lead the way and it will feel right. You and Dave have done such an incrediable job with Kenny. I'm sorry for your struggle. Take care, Sherri

August Blog Challenge - Day 9

List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

Okay, on this blog you've read a lot about my mom and dad.  And Dave, Doug and Kyle.  And Kenny, Zach, Kaitlyn and Kailee.  These people are my family.  Everything I do, I do for them.  It would be impossible for me to adequately describe their influence on me.  And I've talked about them a lot.  So I'm just going to say a word about each of them and what they've taught me - and then I'll go into 10 people outside that circle.

Mom taught me to think of others.  Dad taught me to work hard.  Dave taught me to love unconditionally and out loud.  Doug taught me to never give up and to enjoy each moment.  Kyle taught me to be a mother.  Kenny taught me to embrace the life you have and to laugh.  Zach taught me to think things through and go 100%. Kaitlyn taught me about honesty and that there is always sunshine, even when you can't see it.  Kailee taught me new aspects of faith and faithfulness.

Tattoo

So.
I got a tattoo.  Christine actually wrote on my facebook post, "You??"
Yeah.  Me.

I've been thinking about it for six years.
I finally decided that if after six years, I still wanted it, maybe it was time.

The writing is Dave and Doug's.
Taken from notes they wrote me.
They always signed their notes the same way.

I thought I was doing it in memory of them.
To mark the way they are always on my heart.
To have a visible reminder.
A permanent keepsake,
always with me.

And while it is that.
It is also more.

I didn't realize it,
until afterwards.

It's a marker.
A closing of a chapter.
Closure, if you will.

I don't know how to explain it.
The minute it was finished,
I knew.
I knew something inside me was different.

Dave,
and to a lesser extent,
Doug,
have been part of my every thought
every day
for over 10 years.

Daryl saw the Dali Lama this summer.
One thing he learned:
Interrogate your truth.

I've been thinking about that a lot.

Interrogate implies a…
