Huddled together they look outside and know there's a brightly, beautiful world out there, but can't imagine how to muster the strength to break out to be a part of it. Someone or something must intervene with prayer. Won't it be you? God's waiting.

    Such a strong image James. Depression is a terrible thing and it does trap the entire family for sure. We are going through this plight with a family member. You have to take it one day at a time.
