It’s difficult to know how much vulnerability is too much vulnerability. So with that as a consideration I’ll make this post brief.
This week, among quite a few over the years, has been for the most part negative and regressive. Outside my relationship with my patient and loving wife, our children, her family and my mum, other parts of my family seem to thrive on despair, conflict and negativity.
At the risk of sounding too dramatic and negative myself. It is no overstatement when I say that dysfunctional is no longer a word that fits any adequate description of the actions and the words spoken; most of which are often hostile, covert – targeted in order to shame, insult, blame and manipulate.
In short, I would appreciate your prayers.
Specifically I’m asking for wisdom, words, right response, healing, clarity, courage and strength.
