Friends love through thick and thin, and kinfolk are born to share in hard times. (Proverbs 17:17)
The last couple of months have been a flurry of unknown, disagreement and trying to hope for the best. Those months felt sad and lonely though we all tried to make the best of it. I felt as if we’d been deserted, nothing left but each other and hope. One of the hardest things was being a big sister. It’s hard to comfort someone while you’re upset.
It’s funny to think it’s all over now and just a few months ago it hadn’t begun. Of course sometimes it doesn’t seem like it’s over. Something that helped me was reading. I like reading books about kids my age with similar situations. In fact I received my first book like that from my teacher during those difficult months. It was like they knew. And even if things aren’t quite normal yet they’re always getting better. Ω
Reflect: Which friends have loved you through thick and thin? Which kinfolk have shared in hard times? Pray for these precious people, and give thanks for them.
What is this? Lent is the 40 days, excluding Sundays, before Easter. Traditionally it is a time of intense reflection and pilgrimage. To help you on this journey, Sanctuary has put together 40 stories from people both within and beyond the congregation, with associated questions for reflection and prayer. A reading will be uploaded every day of Lent.
