it’s been a little hopeless around here

i’m too tired to weave words

we await news

a verdict on his broken heart

my stomach drops with every email chime

every phone call

but we may wait months

i am afraid

grieving

exhausted

dark clouds loom

uncertainty and pain lurk within

how do you explain these things to a child?

but i’ve found love too

a chance encounter with old friend [in a waiting room]

a friend to call when I want to hide

waffle house therapy

“i don’t know why but you’re on my heart” messages

sopping up tears with my sleeve during prayer

 surprise date night

volunteer babysitters

this is the beautiful church

arms around the struggling

weeping with those who weep

love in a hopeless place
