“but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.”― Jane Austen

A Rose


My crushed and bleeding heart no longer gushes with a crimson flow but drips steadily, longing for the day when it only seeps. Until then, I will keep my eyes focused on the Beauty that surrounds me because it lives among this river of grief, if only I look.

~ Jeremiah 29:13 ~
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

  6. Beautiful rose capture, Anne.

    Prayers of healing to you. I can't imagine the loss of a child. I do know how hard the loss of 4 pregnancies is. Be strong in your Faith; God will take care of you.
