Sensing incredible opportunity, empowering support, and painful neediness …

And, really, would I want life any other way?

to feel it all deeply. to savor it. I don’t ever want to loose that. because I’m beginning to get a glimpse of how to savor it all where the sweet takes some of the edge out of the bitter and the bitter keeps the goodness of the sweet in perspective.

where tears aren’t weakness. they’re intimate knowledge of Strength.

where laughter isn’t butterflies and flowers. it’s the echo of a heart that counts the most painful things joy.

God, I don’t want it – life – any other way.

“Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.” 1 Peter 4:19, ESV
