The day my mom and my daughter spent at the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris is a single of my favourite memories.  Sad day nowadays. The burning of this gorgeous developing tends to make my heart realize the laments in the Bible when the temple fell. And it reminds me that all factors right here are short-term.

We spent element of yesterday at a loved ones funeral for a cousin who battled cancer at far as well young an age. Now my chest is constricted. I am distracted.  Sadness is an acceptable response to tragedy and loss.

I am preaching the laments to my personal soul.  Really feel deeply. Grieve tremendously.  Stand in solidarity with these who have lost. And also – hug individuals tighter, forgive more quickly, travel much more typically, give much more generously. Reside significant and bold. Its short-term right here but its gorgeous.  And the beauty is a reminder of the factors that are eternal.
