Answered Prayers

“Domestic pain can be searing, and it is usually what does us in. It’s almost indigperseverance-570x352estable: death, divorce, old age, drugs; brain-damaged children, violence, senility, unfaithfulness. Good luck figuring it out, and it is so horrible and endless that you could give up a dozen times.  But grace can be the experience of a second wind, when even though what you want is clarity and resolution, what you get is stamina and poignancy and the strength to hang on.”
