Today is my mama's birthday- happy birthday, sweet, amazing, wonderful mama- and it's also the day we just left a memorial for a 39 year-old who died suddenly of cardiac arrest while hiking, and also the 2 year anniversary of another dear friend taken way too quickly. 🌿
On days like this I can feel like the fish I just saw in an aquarium... pressed against glass, unable to move, mouth wide open, gasping for air... until I remember Ecclesiastes 3:4-
a time to weep
a time to laugh
a time to mourn
a time to dance-
There is a time to dance because there is hope, and the name of hope is Jesus. 🌿
Julia's family created a website that continues to honor her life and celebrate what God does in the pain of loss. Dedicated to inspiring hope and joy in the midst of adversity, "i keep dancing" provides resources, support and opportunities for those who continue to dance in the face of grief and hardship.
If your heart is heavy for any reason today, take a moment to dive into their stories. I promise you will be blessed, and you may even want to join their tattoo crew!
