Brewing thoughts in my head, but not enough time this morning to get it all down.
So for now, I leave you with this (from Richard Paul Evans' book, Timepiece):
"There are moments, it would seem, that were created in cosmic theater where we are given strange and fantastic tests. In these times, we do not show who we are to God (for surely He must already know) but rather to ourselves."
"There is an oft-misunderstood statement: 'Misery loves company.' To some, it implies that the miserable seek to make others like unto themselves. But it is not the meaning, rather there is a universality in grief, a family of sorrow clinging to each other on the brink of the abbyss of despair....I once heard it preached that pain is the currency of salvation. If it is so, surely we have bought heaven."
Regardless of the cause(s) of your pain, know that you have company here in this spot. You can find me here...cheering you on, believing in your ability to survive, loving you.
