Lovely poem

There is a brokenness out of which comes the unbroken,

A shatteredness out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow beyond all grief which leads to joy

And a fragility out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space too vast for words

Through which we pass with each loss,

Out of whose darkness we are sanctified into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound whose serrated edges cut the heart

As we break open to the place inside which is unbreakable

And whole.

  7. Beautiful words. Here from LFCA to wish you a happy birthday for wednesday. I’m sorry about your 7 little ones. I have had 5 first trimester miscarriages and the stillbirth of our daughter at 21 weeks and have moved on to donor embryos. It is very soul-calming to stumble across a new blog and see renewed hope. Your kids are beautiful.


  8. Happy birthday!
