thought for the week. and then some.

"I find beauty in not only the beautiful things in life, but the bittersweet and sad as well. To me, there is something poignantly lovely about the human experience from its splendor to its grief. God created all our emotions, not just the happy ones, and for His good purposes. That's why a good cry can feel so good. And hitting our limits forces us to look outside ourselves for a Savior. It is in the plea, when we're at our end, that we can find that which is truly life-giving. Personally, my moments of deepest grief, deepest pain, have resulted in the most beautiful seasons in my heart. I've met God more intimately in those moments than in all the other pleasant ones combined. What isn't completely lovely about that?"

just kidding.
we'll be back next saturday.
we're going to spend a wonderfully blissful week on the east coast with my entire family.
just hangin out.
i will try to post while we're gone, or else i'll have
mounds of posting to do when we get back.
and chances are, it probably won't all get posted.
