I am struggling. I know everyone is right now. Still, I know that God is holding me close to His heart. I grew up in a homeschool cult where I was spiritually and emotionally and sexually abused. As a young adult, getting out from under the oppression , I promised myself I would never homeschool my children. Since then, I have forgiven my parents, my community and the cult leader, but there are still wounds that reopen now and then. Having to homeschool my 9 year old son now sometimes feels more than I can bear. Not because it’s difficult (after all, I have only one child to deal with) but because I am being barraged by very painful, difficult memories that are tearing open my wounds. I find myself crying, just leaking tears, I fall asleep suddenly when it all becomes too much, leaving my son to do school on his own while I recover. I feel so badly about it, but it’s my reality right now. I am reaching out to God all day, spending time in the Bible, creating songs to praise Him. I know all of this helps, but I could use the prayers of my brothers and sisters in Christ. Pray for strength and comfort for me. Pray that bitterness won’t creep into my heart. Pray that my son won’t be too negatively influenced by my emotional state.


My mother fell May 1 (again) and this time I am not able to go back to Wisconsin to care for her due to Covid-19. She is in a Covid-free rehab center now and will be discharged to home (where she lives alone) fairly soon. I have been doing everything by phone. Please pray for the Lord's direction and wisdom in setting up home care for her. Pray she would accept the recommendations with grace and thankfulness. Pray, also, I would clearly hear the Lord's voice in the possibility/timing of flying back there.


My prayer, is that the virus, will soon come to a end and we can all start to be able to meet again in church. And I pray for Pastor Bob, and his staff, during this difficult times we are going through.
