Things of which I cannot speak

April 12, 2010

There are things going on in my family right now that I can’t blog about. Hard things. The kind of things that require of me that I dig for reserves of strength and patience and compassion I don’t always believe I have.

Bear with me during this silence. And if you are so inclined, please pray for healing and strength. And a future that reveals the beauty and growth that can come from the depths of pain and disappointment.

    so sorry things are hard right now. i do find that the greatest beauty and growth come from the most difficult pain and disappointment, it just takes awhile… may you not have to spend too much time there, but for every moment you do, may your heart grow more and more open. one of Rumi’s teachings that i’ve been working with lately comes to mind: “roar, lion of the heart, and tear me open.” wishing you grace, katy

    Dawn comes after dark night. Beautiful roses spend a lot of time building good root systems where you can’t see that going on and think you’ve only got thorns. Know that good is going on even if you can’t see it now and that a bright rose-filled day is coming.

    You have our prayers. Read the best line regarding praying for each other just recently:

    A nun promising someone who was begging for intercessory prayer:

    “I have you tucked in my sleeve.”

    Tucking you in, you and all your most beloved,

    How quickly our lives change in a moment. Consider the prayers done, being done and continuing to be done.

    Of course I will offer up prayers for you, sweet Heather. Every deeply beautiful thing in my life was born of pain. Embrace as much as is bearable. x0x
