~ There is A kind of grief ~ That leads To life ~ And a kind That leads to death ~ May our hearts Be open ~ To being Broken ~ To that Sorrow ~ That rains Blessing ~ On Tomorrow. ~

Who will enter the dark, unchartered spaces of our lives? Who will sit awhile with us in grief? Who will carry pain and distress, Bring healing and relief?
