I understand praying prayers that are not answered in the way we wish.
I understand fixing a marriage but I also understand losing a marriage despite all effort.
I understand life when it starts to unravel and when failure is discovered by others.
I understand telling one's children that their parents can't hold it together.
I know the fear of not knowing what's coming, of making wrong decisions and not knowing what to do.
I understand loneliness and the fear of being alone. Lord, will it always be like this?
But I'm seeing that God is a God of new things. I've made new friends. I have a new career and home and both are wonderful.
I've visited places and seen people for which there was no time in the past.
Dare I say, there's some fun in again being single.
God doesn't just create new things but He can make all things new.
In other words, He's not tossing us out and starting anew with someone else.
He looks at us and dreams of whom we are going to be when we get to the other side of our drama and pain.
