Finding Beauty in the Ripples

22 07 2011

Her face was a tortured mixture of defiance and agony, and her gaze never budged from my face as she waited for an answer. I don’t know what she saw in the eyes that met hers, but I know what I felt. Compassion and mercy and a desperate longing for words that would speak purpose to her pain.

Today at All the Church Ladies I introduce my friend, Tammy, who suffered the unthinkable. Can redemption reach even this far? Come and see.

Oh my! That looks like our Rose Dog–pink nose and all–that passed away last year.

Miss Jeanne,

I read your words at All The Church Ladies. Such a story. Part of His-story, no doubt. It is raw and real and God-anchored.

It moved me. A lot.

I read your story about Tammy, and I just want you to know how touched I am. You have an incredible gift, Jeanne, to be able to encourage that transformation. And you are brave. I think I would have run from the room in the face of that kind of heart-breaking confrontation.

Your comments are a gift. Please know I read each one with gratitude.
