We are all broken.
It’s a unified human experience.
And we all need a hope that doesn't disappoint,
a love that anchors us,
joy that survives in unthinkable conditions,
and a perspective shift that goes beyond our circumstances.
Some days we feel the perfection of sunshine and a light breeze. Other days hold wet, gray skies with drowning grief. In the wake, comes promise of new growth. Still other days a cold winter frost catches us by surprise, halting our journey toward fruitful blooms. We step back, reeling at the damage from this frost. We question the system and environment we grow in.
We can exist in this garden dictated by the changing weather patterns. Or, we can see a different kind of brave living–that which exists beyond our fragile stems and dainty leaves, living instead deep in our roots.
This book is for those sitting in the deep-down dark, traveling with grief as a constant companion, and anyone whose life path has taken an unexpected turn.
May you discover the Life-Giver of joy,
see your beautiful bloom,
and know that hope is always worth holding on to,
because redemption is coming—and in fact—is already happening here and now.
