I'll post a better update later, but I just wanted to quickly post

Cale took this picture of me on Wednesday while we were out and about. I laughed and said, "that was unattractive!" Cale looked at it on the little screen on the camera and said, "you're beautiful." He is the sweetest man...

This post is me coming to you like I have so many times before and asking for prayer. I'm not going to drag it out and dump all of my thoughts on here...I have to get in the shower and ready for the day, so you're lucky!

I'm struggling. I'm having a really hard time and in the midst of this (whatever it is) the Lord has been faithful as always to meet me where I'm at and surround me in His presence.

I'm asking Jesus to hold me near...

that He would hold this little blonde girl on His lap and lift my chin so that my eyes are looking into His...I want to get lost in His deep never-ending love.

I also need a good slap on my hand.

Just so you know, it's not even about Cale or wanting him better and a different life...of course, maybe in the waters somewhere of all my emotions and thoughts, that is a part of it, but honestly, that's not what I'm struggling with...a bit of surprise to me?

Thank you in advance for praying for me. I know you are. I know I'm not carrying this all alone.

Thank you!


  1. I have found that sometimes in these moments, the only way out is to close yourself in a room and cry your eyes, then let God wipe the tears away and help you feel better! Sometimes there are just no words to help, but I'll be praying!

  2. I will be praying for you today! Can't promise about tomorrow though.... ha, ha. KIDDING! I hate to hear that you are struggling, my sweet friend. I wish I could come in like Cinderella and sing those blues away while mopping your floor.

    I don't know what you're going through, but you have always shown such strength of character that you CONTINUALLY astonish me. Please know that even in the midst of your struggle, God does NOT AT ALL condemn you for your weaknesses. This is His chance to let his strength fill you and He loves to strengthen his children supernaturally. I pray that you will feel that strength undeniably, and soon. I LOVE you!

  3. You know that I am as always praying for you my love..I have you in a huge huge hug and wiping those tears...I love you and if you need anything give me a call...

  4. My prayers are with you, sweet Kathleen. I know we have never met, but I pray for you every day. Your strength and your faith are gifts of magnificent blessings to me. I pray that you are granted peace within your soul.

  5. Praying Kathleen,

    Remember.. have coffee with Jesus. He is as close as the mention of his name.
    i love you, Kathy Fahey

  6. Prayers going your way right now ! Comfort and Clearity for you in this hour and season. Love you ! Believing you will be looking at your reflection in your Father's eyes and seeing what he sees !!!! Blessings and MAJOR HUGS!!! ((()))Reenie

  7. You know, I think the picture is kind of cute. I am trusting you will see the gift of whatever Father is having you go through. In gardening manure is the best fertilizer. Your life is a garden. Right now sounds like fertilizer to me. I love you and am leaving you in the palm of Father's hand. Marion

  8. As I was reading (thank you so much for 'helping' me subscribe since i so rarely go on FB), I was thinking, "Caleb needs guy stuff..." then on the end of your post, there is was, a prayer request for a mentor---emphasis on MENtor. I think you're on the right track with 'jobs', as frustrating it may be to 'train' him to do it,' a man "must have an occupation or they will run mad" ( a line from Sense & Sensibility)---so I will set my intercession in that direction!

    Uh, I wanna join you and the ladies canning 900 lbs of apples! Isn't homemade a-sauce great?

    Be at peace, we don't think you are saying "bad" things about Cale----you are in a tough spot and we got your back! We love him and can sense that he is 'getting' that all the pieces are not in place and it is frustrating him.

    We love you and know that you want to protect, go make some apple crisp..then solution to hard times...i bake!!
