Not Mine

It’s easier said than done, but I wrote it during one of the darkest times of my life. Being torn apart in the temporary feels devastating, yet it can clarify what is eternal. It can solidify what is certain.

There is much in our lives that is not ours. We are deeply invested – and need to be in order to learn, grow, help, serve – and loss and separation feel horrific, yet it is far from the end. Giving over what is temporary can position us to see and receive what is lasting. But we have to live with open minds, hearts, and hands. That invites hurt and loss but also truth and peace.
