They are so far away, Lord. I miss them. It hurts.

Your Word says that you are close to the brokenhearted,
so I call on you:
Be close to me,
and to Robin,
and Aubrey, Kevin, Calleigh, and Ryder,
as we miss the family we love so much.

Enfold us in your arms and enfold them, too,
so that your strong embrace
will keep us all close.

Your Word says, too, that one day is as a thousand in your sight;
somehow, please make the days of our separation from each other
like hours.
Make the two thousand miles between us
like mere steps.

And hasten the day when we see each other
and hold each other

in Jesus' name, amen.
