What is a faun? Higher up and further in with an outreach twist. Writing.

Excerpt from 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp- Hard Questions!

page 11  – “Really, when you bury a child – or when you just simply get up every day and live life raw – you murmur the question soundlessly.  No one hears.  Can there be a good God?  A God who graces with good gifts when a crib lies empty through long nights, and bugs burrow through coffins?  Where is God, really?  How can He be good when babies die, and marriages implode, and dreams blow away, dust in the wind?  Where is grace bestowed when cancer gnaws and loneliness aches and nameless places in us soundlessly die, break off without reason, erode away.  Where hides this joy of the Lord, this God who fills the earth with good things, and how do I fully live when life is full of hurt?  How do I wake up to joy and grace and beauty and all that is the fullest life when I must stay numb to losses and crushed dreams and all that empties me out?”sucre2
