No Words, Just Listen and Love

"I love you."
"I am so sorry."
"Is there anything I can do?"
"I will be praying."

What else can you say when someone you love is hurting? Often advice is not asked for or wanted when a situation is painful. 
Just listen. 
Less words are more helpful. 
Loving and Listening.
Be present.
Be available.

One of mine is heartbroken. My gut reaction is to 'FIX IT'. The reality is I can't fix it. I don't have all the answers. This is a time to be there and listen not to open my mouth and go. Instead I am going to try to close my mouth, open my ears and pray for her.

In Him,
