Life Goes On

So much that we treasure
Can be gone in an instant

We are stronger than we know
We can rebuild, keep on

We can endure loss
If we hold on to hope

In the midst of tragedy
God is with us
Our community surrounds us
Life goes on

Seeing so much loss in so many places, near and far, as I watched the news… an outbreak of crime in my city, tornadoes causing devastation, loss of so many lives on the plane crashed into the mountains… I pray the survivors will more than survive.

  1. When something tragic happens…it feels like time should stop, that the world should stop, that things can’t just go on, but they do. I think there is some solace in knowing that things will go on, things will get better, we can heal. It isn’t always easy and doesn’t always happen fast, but it’s possible!

    Faith in God and strength of community can help when all feels lost. We are strong and we can survive.

    Today was just an awful day in the news…leaves me feeling completely sad. But then, I re-enter my life and I try to realize all I am grateful for. It is all so complicated.

    “In the midst of tragedy
    God is with us
    Our community surrounds us
    Life goes on”
