“One of my favorite passages of scripture is the shortest one in the book. John 11: 35 simply says, “Jesus wept.” I love this verse because it shows a savior in touch with the human condition: pain. He wept. He allowed himself to feel grief and at that moment, tears streamed down his face like a river. He’s the friend that will sit with you and cry.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- Today is a somber day for many, myself included, as we reflect on life in the aftermath of the passing of Kobe Bryant and his beautiful daughter, Gianna. The world is in this state of shock and silence. Loved ones are holding each other a little closer…
Time is not guaranteed for me….
I’m mourning and I don’t know how to bounce back just yet…
Arise and eat for the time to be silent is no more….
“straddling the present and eternity”
Said I wasn’t going to write until after the holidays…I just couldn’t resist.
“Why do we make wrong choices? Maybe it’s because at the beginning of time: Adam and Eve made a single wrong choice and ate the forbidden fruit, dooming mankind.”
Would you die for a perfect stranger? How about your family? How about me????
“Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You’d better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again”- John Mayer
