A friend going through a LOT...

Post by Skip » Mon May 08, 2017 8:16 pm

Good friend is dealing with major issues on just about all fronts - family, job, health, etc. I'm one of the "inner circle" and a confidant, so I'm playing cheerleader and listener and supporter and I know that if it's stressing me out to the bejesus just talking and texting, it has to be an order of magnitude worse for them. Pray for us both, but mostly them; they need it most.

This is for real, guys.

Mr. Skip gave me a two-sentence summary at the Pipe Show. Some beloved friends, very close to Skip and his family, are suffering deeply. And the community is suffering to help them. Imagine too many fish, straining the net to the breaking point.

Please double down on your prayer for this one. Healing is needed.
