One of the great paradoxes of Christian faith is that our weaknesses edify and encourage one another to greater holiness. Isn’t that strange? That strengths, perceived, and in particular, projected strengths could actually, at times, hinder growth in the things of God. Whereas honest weaknesses have a way of stirring us up towards greater holiness, creating safe places for us to experience the grace of God.

I deleted all of the pictures today. It was time to put all of you away.
It’s crazy how someone so important can become just a memory. Life keeps moving on and you think about them less and less, but it still stings a little. What was once a picture of the life I had hoped for is now stored away as a distant memory. It all makes you want to protect your heart, life and time carefully; you never know how it can all shift until it already has.
