Good Quote

"Occasionally, weep deeply over the life you hoped would be.  Grieve the losses.  Then wash your face.  Trust God.  And embrace the life you have."--John Piper


  1. Oh, that is a good quote. I love the idea of occasionally acknowledging the life you thought you'd have, the losses inherent in losing a marriage, easy conception, or even just pure unadulterated hope and innocence, and then wash your face and move on and love the life you have for all it has to give you. Beautiful thought. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks! As soon as I saw the quote, I had to put it somewhere to remember it. You are so right. The past hurts, whatever they are, bubble up from time to time. It does not work to ignore them. Have acknowledge them and the move forward. Hold onto the happy, which can be a challenge at times. But, it is so important.
