When Things Seem Hard...

...you inevitably get a reality check, a punch in the friggin' gut, forcing you to acknowledge that things could always be so much worse.

Yesterday, a wonderful guy left us behind here on earth for someplace better.

Transcended this earthly life so, so soon.

For the past year, I have followed his story, prayed for healing, prayed for comfort, and thought often of his family.

Bryan & Katie, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Time & distance may have caused a literal lapse in a friendship we once knew, but I still hold you both dear. And my heart breaks for the sorrow you must be overcome with right now.

Kristen, while I never had the chance to meet you, I have admired your strength and courage in your writing through this entire trial, and great is the reward for someone with as much love as you have given.

Rory, you will be missed by many!

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
