Grace and Mercy

Many of us are asking why.
Why so many tragedies?
Why so much hurt?
Why so many children?

He hears us.

He knows our pain. 
He catches our tears and listens to our prayers. 

Remember, this is not heaven. 
Sometimes we won't understand why.
But we can all live with grace and even a little mercy.

We can take time to connect with those in pain.
To look for the good; the helpers. 

Let your heart hurt if needed. 
There is beauty in the most sad moments in life.
Let these times guide you to Him. 

Not away.

Remember, no matter how bad it gets, 
we will meet again. 
In perfection.

So true Elyse! I always go to Philippians 4:6-9 for a great reminder of the peace that comes from God. It always brings me so much comfort! Have a great weekend! ~ Jamie

Oh Elyse,
This is beautiful. It's hard to see the beauty in all the troubles of the world, but you acknowledge that, and how special you are for that.

I hope you are enjoying the summer days.

Love,
~Sheri

I needed this message today. I stumbled upon your blog while doing a "google" search on ASCP.
