My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise renews my life. Psalms 119:50
Straight from the frozen tundra...oh, no, that's not New Mexico! I hate to complain, as we're nowhere close to being bad off here--except for the lack of heat for many PNM customers in the state. But it's beginning to feel like the ground has decided to stay frozen for a while longer. We didn't get the snow that was expected last night, so that gives me hope for a warmer Valentine's Day weekend.
If you find words difficult at times like these, just sit in silence and lend your encouragement without them. Give a hug or a kiss to express your understanding that even though they're going through a heartwrenching experience, you are there for them...you are with them. Let them know that they're not going through the pain alone. And remind them that God has sent angels of mercy who are close by. Don't sit around wondering what to say...sit around feeling their pain and sharing their grief.
