What do I know?
Only a few things.
Simple things.
I know that I am blessed beyond measure.
I am fearfully blessed.
To whom much is given...
I know there is the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
And there is an enemy.
I know that life is not fair.
And I've come to know that sometimes unfairness is called mercy.
I know that life is fragile. A treasure worth protecting.
I know that relationships are difficult.
I know that I am highly sensitive to life.
A blessing and a curse.
I know that have gazed into the territory of insanity and brilliance
And that the boundaries between the two are mysteriously nebulous.
I've learned that I don't know as much as I thought I knew.
But I do know the one who knows things that I never even thought about knowing.
I know that I am not in control. In fact I've felt less in control with each day of greater responsibility.
I know that I can laugh hysterically and weep shamelessly within the same day and sleep soundly afterward,
I know that the Bible is a sword but God uses it as a scalpel.
I know that this story is not over.
I know that one day I will see the end.
And that it will be something wonderful.
