Paradoxes of life...

Life is full of so many paradoxes.  Jade is home this weekend to celebrate her birthday with the family and to attend a funeral.  The stuff of life and death, *sigh*. 

Even the saddest things can become, once we have made peace with them, a source of wisdom and strength for the journey that still lies ahead. ~Frederick Buechner

Tomorrow we're celebrating 19 years of life with our precious Jade.  She is an amazing woman who taught me what it is to love.  Today we will gather with the Ouellette family to remember Kaitlin and celebrate her life.

Please continue to pray for this family.

Have you ever had one of those moments where you think to yourself "I'm going to need this"?  An experience or something that you can draw on when you need it.  I think of those, as moments of beauty.  I hope you have one of those moments today.
