I was blessed to have a joy filled weekend.
And then today happened.
Once again evil stole the headlines....invaded our lives....
My heart is singing a lament tonight.....for those who mourn and hurt and are angry. For the bombers and the bombed......for the ripples of fear that emanate across the globe....ripples of rage.....and deep sadness for a world so far far from the perfection of its creation.
I am so amazed and deeply grateful that our hearts can hold more than one song at a time.
That our hearts hold never-ending playlists of joy and sorrow and longing and energy and angst and delight.
Sing it loud or sing a whisper. Be still and sing or dance and move in the music.
I hold at least a few songs in my heart tonight and I choose to share with you the photos that delighted me this weekend as I pray that joy will follow mourning and good will triumph over evil.....
Hold on to one another friends.....hold on.
