Being Heard

Captain doesn't get much sympathy, nor does he ask for much understanding. Yet he needs the support of people who care about him to get through this whole ordeal of unemployment and medical disability. So when the best man from our wedding called and insisted on getting together, I knew that would be the best medicine. Kenny and Darlene regaled us with stories all through dinner about politics, private schooling, and people from the little town where they and Captain grew up. Afterward we went to their house for dessert wine and Captain opened up about his predictament. It was a late evening (Captain was tired even though he had his regular nap) and it was so affirming to share his struggles with others who would keep him in prayer.
