I type this with a heavy heart and a sick stomach. Our Bayla and Beauregard somehow figured out a way to get out of our farm/fence Sunday morning after we left to go to church and when we got back late Sunday evening we couldn't find them anywhere. Before you judge, know that our farm is huge with lots of acreage and double fences all the way around the property. We've never had an animal get out. We are devastated. Please, please, please pray that they are alive and okay and that they will somehow make it back to our home. We have put out fliers, made phone calls, ridden the roads with flashlights-you name it, we have done it. Now it is after 2AM and my maternal instincts won't allow me to sleep, because I am worrying. I know it's a sin, but I am just worried sick. I can't imagine how frightened they must feel if they are still alive. Of course, I keep going over the should've-would've-could've scenarios in my head even though it is pointless. I can't imagine what it would be like to have a child kidnapped. Then I had a crazy thought that the Lord might just be preparing us for an event in which our child is kidnapped someday. I know-I'm losing it here. Please tell me you've been here. I know in my heart that Satan is the author of those kinds of thoughts that cause us to live in fear. But I am so afraid for our puppies right now. I don't know what to do. I'll probably be up the rest of the night. I just don't see how I can rest not knowing where they are.
We really appreciate your prayers-thank you in advance!! Please don't think I'm a nut after reading this.
