In Pursuit of Peace

With Valentine’s Day on its way, can you think of someone who needs your love? It is easy to love those who are lovable. What about those who have brought pain to your life?

Perhaps in addition to sending a valentine to your loving wife, mother and sibling, consider writing a note of reconciliation; maybe a note to help mend a broken friendship or kinship. Sometimes the correspondence takes the form of an apology regardless of who is to blame. It may be rebuffed or no reply returned. However, sometimes stony hearts are miraculously melted under the power of God.

In the tragedy our family has experienced the past two years, for me time is too precious to hold grudges, withhold affection and ignore heart prompts for reconciliation.  Hebrews 12:14 says it best. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

About Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering

Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering shares the true story about a sudden family tragedy. As author of the book to be published in the summer of 2014, the true account tells of my sister being rear ended by a drunk driver. She barely survives the high speed crash being left to live as a quadriplegic. Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family. Only through God's grace can a family survive such a tragedy!
