It’s truly sad that some people live in fear. Even more sad when what they fear is their own partner or someone in their own home. It’s unimaginable unless you’re living it. I pray that our Lord gives all of his hurt children reprieve and comfort.

Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins!”
