Vulnerability keeps us present in life. Compassion and grief are bedfellows that encompass human experience. If we desire to grow, we need ourselves to do it.
Bring one moment to an end, and therefore allowing a new one to begin. The events from ten years ago were resolved many years ago for me, but there's still work to be done.
The tough parts of life aren't always the emotional ones, but rather the ones we know will touch on a nerve. It's easy to find nerves when discussing darkness, evil, God, and man.
Remember...oh please, always remember, that for all the darkness there's a matching extension of light. If we use as much of our effort to recognize the light as we the darkness, we'll find our lives balanced and equipped better than we figured.
Looking back brings up a lot to say, and often more than intended. I'm happy to share, but I didn't realize how emotional this continues to make me.
