This makes me want to meet you face-to-face even more ... because there is such wisdom in learning to hear what is unsaid and grace in longing to capture the heart of words when the words themselves may not be just what we prefer. What a beautiful lesson to all of us ... a two-fold lesson, of learning to listen well and learning to trust the hearts of others. You are beautiful, inside and out.

And so, my one word is also listen. As in slow down, be still ... breathe deep and embrace life. I look forward to sharing this journey with you!! xo, my friend! For real!!

Oh sweet Robin ... you have put into words almost every thought I've had. This isn't about guns or rights, not even about mental illness or parenting, this is simply sin. Broken, desperate, fallen ... and this depravity is nothing new. Word-made-flesh came into a world that was just as broken, just as desperate, just as fallen ... the oppressive Roman rule, the fear that slaughtered babies. The sages of old (biblical and otherwise) rightly say, "There is nothing new under the sun." Until all things are made new, all old things will remain. My heart breaks and aches. And there are no simple answers, no easy fixes ... just this, "For God so loved the world ... " It doesn't make sense, it doesn't "feel" like it helps. But I cling to the truth that I cannot fathom ... God loves us, each of us, all of us.

Oh Robin! This series is just what I needed. I'm saving each one to remind myself that this season is a blessing not a curse ... and that how I handle myself during the tempest is far more important long term than whatever the tempest is about!! You are such a blessing to this mom of a tween. THANK YOU!!!
