“Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything) that’s how the light gets in…” Leonard Cohen
2016 threw my family into a black hole. And it felt as though, suddenly, there was a crack in everything. Funny (and not so funny) how that dark was just what I needed to start noticing the light.
2016 brought 5 unexpected surgeries for me plus an unexpected, prolonged illness for one of my kids. My family was carried and fed and prayed and loved through the 2016, 2017 and 2018 by so many people.
Updating everyone on our crazy, medical chaos somehow turned into this blog! It was in those updates that I felt compelled to share how God and I were dealing with these crazy episodes of “Season 41” of my life.
And the name? How the Light Gets in
Life has broken my heart along the way. It may have broken yours a bit too.
I’m learning to be grateful for those cracks.
After all, it’s how the light gets in…
