Sometimes Life is Even MORE Unfair than Others

Hopefully, we all know that life just isn't fair and we no longer get caught up in the expectation that it will be, only to be disappointed because it just can't be. But sometimes, I just cannot help but think that "Life" has just gone that extra mile to be difficult. It is hard for me to understand why someone who is down and out already can be hit with yet another blow. But it happens and because it does, jumpinginpuddlesagain needs your prayers.

Over the last few weeks I have made several requests for prayers for my cyberfriend, jumpinginpuddles. A Prayer Request for a Survivor - Please Read was the beginning of this journey followed by a post Some Things I Can't Explain about my own experiences and why I believe that it's important to pray for survivors of satanism when they request it.

Anyone who has been following this saga knows that jumpinginpuddles has really had her hands full. She is dealing with a crisis bigger than most will ever experience in their lifetimes. Even with all of the internal conflict and the external attacks, jip has been hanging in there and giving it her best shot.

As if this isn't enough, she has been also dealing with the recently diagnosed cancer of her sister. She has been making plans since she found out to go and visit to lend support for her sister but life has dealt another turn, the high price of caring

This probably won't make sense to those who haven't lived extreme child abuse first hand but pushing away those who love you when a victim is hurting is a typical response. It keeps the victims isolated and even in adulthood is still causing more pain. Both of these women need all the help they can get in a most difficult of times.

I'm keeping JIP and her sister in my thoughts and prayers. Sometimes life isn't fair. Sometimes people aren't fair. Especially when they've been hurt a lot, too. Sometimes the best thing we can do is bless them and go on with our own lives because they can't or won't choose to heal and grow and learn new ways of dealing with us.

And JIP is constantly in my thoughts and prayers.

Sometimes when people reach out to help me my knee jerk reaction is to push them away. I wish I wouldn't do this. I think it does keep me isolated.
