won't the resting rise up?

the brokens lie, resting
small things 
a clay figurine
a wooden ladle
and
life-changing ones
a close-to-us-marriage
a cancer-ridden loved one
and
i'm trying to accept 
that sometimes the broken won't be fixed
that sometimes the rest is for always
but
i want miracles just the same

join me in praying for miracles today? that the resting will rise up again?

  1. I will join you in praying for miracles today. One of my former students is fighting for her life right now....and she has a 4 day old son and a 5 year old daughter. Stopping in from Five Minute Friday.

  2. Radical acceptance of reality even when the broken won't be fixed and the hurting cannot find rest. Such a hard, hard place to find.

    Beautiful! But the broken are fixed where we can't see and then we have to remember that the broken are healed in glory. Praying for you! I've traveled this road recently and the miracle comes, sometimes in the healing of the broken heart instead of the broken body.

  4. This post reminds me to Laura Story's Blessings. It's hard to accept this sometimes.
