Today T and I watched the storm blow in while sitting on the swings. (Until we were sneak-attack super-soaked.)
Right now some friends and some family are walking through some dark storms. (I have a few mini ones of my own.) I don't like the storms. I want them to go away.
But, there is a hidden beauty. Some of the most inspiring stories come from people who have walked through the harshness of life and emerged with compassion and grace and wisdom (albeit, a few scars, too.).
On this side of heaven, life will never be easy. I am so thankful for friends who encourage, who share their real stories with open hearts. And even more thankful for Words of Truth that breathe HOPE into a world filled with storms.
Part of the 31 Day Challenge.
