A Day of Reflection

Oh life.




Filled with so much love and hatred; so much hope and disappointment; so beauty and so much ugliness, at the same time.

If you’re a long time reader, then you know that 2012 was a tough year for my family. We went through so much heart ache, so much life altering change, that some days it felt like we might break in half.

But faith saw me through. Faith lit my path, even when it was so faint that I still stumbled, it was there.

And I am once again relying on my faith to understand what happened in Boston yesterday. Senseless. Unnecessary. Disgusting. So much hard work, determination, and happiness, gone in an instant.

Life is so temporary. So unpredictable.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by the bombings yesterday in Boston. I pray for your comfort. I pray for your strength. I pray for your foundation of faith, that it may hold you up in such life shattering times.

Surrounded by darkness. Empty of strength. Questioning. Grasping. God lifted me up. My personal faith that I built brick by brick with my own Bible and prayer, gave me a foundation to kneel on when I couldn’t stand.

My prayers are for you. My love is with you.
