Sometimes the things we hold dear slip through our fingers like shifting sand. Life changes overnight, and fear wells up like an oil well about to spew. And you’re left, wondering. What happened? What now? When the future suddenly seems uncertain, where is your security?
Some things you never forget. The phone call in the middle of the night. The sound of heavy steps in the hallway and a door closing. The noise of a car door opening and shutting, and the hum of our Chevrolet sedan whispering the truth through my open window as our car backed out of the driveway into the street. Then silence. But sleep wouldn’t come again for a while. My eyes might try to close, but imagination would pry them open with invisible toothpicks: Who is it this time, Lord? A baby? A mother, father, teenager, child?
