For my dear friends


How can something be so full of sadness and yet be OK?

So wrong and yet in some unsearchable way right?

So painfully out of our hands and yet so held?

How can we grieve and miss and ache for things to be other than what they are and yet be content?

How can we want so hard that we feel we will break and yet lack nothing?

How can we cry and accept?

How can we be broken and whole?

How do you even take the next step or breathe the next breath?

Because God is good and glorious and great and generous and gracious and gentle.

Because we don’t have to understand.

Because this ending is not THE END.

Surely he is coming soon!
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. Amen.
Rev 22:20-21.
