And I am painfully, but rightfully, reminded that this is not all we have. We have a hope that is nestled in the grace of God and promise of an eternity with Him, apart from pain, [disease], sin and disappointment. This is temporary. Oh, so temporary. Even when the scars are lifelong. So amidst our current frustration, we are forced to see this life a little more through the eyes of our Creator. A beautiful but painful thing.
