Things that stand between me and Seattle (aka the next seventy-two hours): two finals, a needtobreathe concert, a full day of work, wedding dress shopping, a graduation ceremony and multiple graduation celebrations, oh and somehow, somehow I’ll fit packing, more studying, and a trip to the post office into all of that. Oh the things that can fit into three days.
"Suffering is universal, no one escapes it. The question is and will always be what form your particular suffering will take? Each one of us will suffer. Your pain is the concrete way in which you participate in the pain of humanity. When we realize this, we see reflected back the other forms of pain worn by our brothers and sisters who live and have lived on this same rock. Our pain connects with their pain, and when our eyes are open to this, there is validation - we’re not crazy, we’re not alone. All of mankind cries out for mercy."
watching stories I’ve grown up holding dear come to life in an entirely new way, so thankful for the way francine river’s sews her words together & ultimately so thankful for GRACE.
