i am coming off a crummy morning, after a crummy day yesterday and a fairly crummy night before that. the last hour has been amazingly different. it may just be a brief rest in the whirlwind of fibromyalgia flare-ups and overly emotional and tired young children (& mama) or it may be we are slowly climbing out of the pit of yuckiness. either way i am grateful.
this seemed like an excellent time to share a poem we came across last week. after listening to a ravi zacharias teaching that referenced it, jesse e-mailed me a link to these words. annie's story is one of true inspiration. i have been poring over her work since then.
i took a moment over the weekend to write out this poem and add it to my inspiration board. looking up this morning, i felt such a softening of my heart as i read the words. thank God for giving this woman such strength and conviction and wisdom.
