barely

25 . October . 2012

i know we’re all barely breathing tonight.

as our hearts are rent open
sobbing
sobbing
for the neighborhood family on w75th st
who have suffered unimaginable tragedy,

and stacy recently pointed me to
2 corinthians 1:5

‘for as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings,
so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.’

and reminded me that
as we live in this world,
we suffer loss…

and our hearts groan,

but Jesus comforts us.

and then gives us the
inestimable privilege
of comforting each other.

weeping on 70th,
kjc
