We've searched everywhere!
Maddie and I woke up to a stark reality yesterday.
By the afternoon we realized the cold, hard truth.
Daddy and Mommy were gone.
This reality was met with shock and disbelief.
We are trying to get our bearings.
I am trying to show leadership and take charge of this situation but it's not easy.
I try to get through to Maddie but she can't hear me anyway. (She's deaf. Remember?)
I just want to bury my head under the covers and try not to think about what's happening...
Last night I just dreamed of them walking in the door this morning and setting our world right side up again.
I'm desperately in need of a breakthrough, friends.
At least Maddie and I have each other to lean on even though she can't hear me.
It's just important right now that we be near each other.
Even Kayte feels sorry for us that we're without them this week...
Last night I was so discouraged she anointed me, laid paws on me and said, "In Jesus name, take this depression from Max..." I still felt oppressed when the prayer was finished but I didn't want to admit it.
Maddie sent out a tweet on Twitter this morning to see if anybody knew their whereabouts. She also Googled some research on missing parents but finally decided to just go to Biblegateway and read the 23rd Psalm and comfort herself in all this...she soon flipped over to Hebrews to read about faith.
Maddie's faith is so strong especially since her back was healed last year. (Thanks for the prayer for that again, by the way.) She said the same people that prayed her up off of this sick bed will pray that we'll be okay this week without them...
She said this morning that she has faith that they'll be back again soon. She's watching out the window and waiting. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, my friends...
I've dug my paws into the carpet over this. I need a faith enhancer. Maybe a bone? A new toy? Sometimes you just need a confirmation, ya know?
Please pray for us for strength. We believe in faith that they are coming back, we just don't know when. Thank you for standing in faith with us.
We love you,
