A Light in the Heart

the world is filled with beauty if we open our eyes

So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered. I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad.

Jesus is so present, even when we don’t feel like He is or even when we are not present ourselves; Christ is still there.

Odette asleep on my chest while I watch Netflix. It’s nice to have a friend to come home to.
