We all have pain, don’t we? Sadness and loss and failure and struggle and tragedy. Pain is universal and, at some point or another, it happens to all of us. But I’m done believing the universal pain of life is inflicted like a lightning bolt from God for a ‘reason’ and God is somehow teaching me a lesson.
I noticed how the people with the most painful stories sometimes had the most serene smiles on their faces and how they leapt to help the next person in line.
For me, writing is like a gift all wrapped up in a beautiful little box and tied with a gigantic frilly bow that I’ve been waiting to unwrap my entire life.
What if we stopped to really realize...really, truly believe...that the way we look is not the best thing any of us have to offer???
There was a time in my life my husband was going to die...
I wish I could tell her to have faith and trust Jesus...with her heart and her babies and her husband's addiction and her life.
Let go of the stressing and striving. Let go of distraction and discontentment. Let go of chasing perfection. Your kids don't want perfect...they just want you.
