Hi all. I think there may be some confusion about the "Beautiful Hope" post. I only wrote the very first paragraph...the rest of the words are excerpted from the blog post of a newly widowed mom. I think I have edited the post to make it more clear that these are all her words. Her grief is still so very fresh...but I thought her words about meeting suffering with mercy, despair with hope and fear with truth are timeless words to live by.
