“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

 

 

We all have those beautiful people in our lives.

A mother.

A friend.

A teacher.

A dad.

A grandparent.

A sister.

A brother.

A salesclerk.

A study buddy.

A librarian.

A neighbor.

A someone.

They are beautiful because they know pain and yet they love. They know failure and yet they run again. They know abandonment and yet they offer acceptance.

They do this to the ones they love. The ones they don’t. They do it to you.

That’s why they are beautiful.

Because they know all the hard stuff we do, and yet they allow it to make them better.

    Becca,
    Thank God for a Redeemer! I will give Him the mess of my life and trust Him with the outcome. He wrote my story as well and knew the choices I would make….and NEVER left. Incredible love.

    Thanks for those words, Becs! Definitely needed the encouragement as I fight the lie to just not care anymore or even just not as much…

I want to hear from you. Seriously. I mean that.
