Reflection for the Week - August 6

Relational break ups and downs destroy both the strong and the weak. Devastating losses accumulate over the years and attempt to numb us and rip us apart. Left in bitterness and despair, we weep over what once was and what could have been, but now is not. This being driven to tears though, slices through to the core, and can open a space for hope. Yet, such a hope passes through a sharp knife that cuts the throat of the lamb, spilling blood everywhere over everyone, presenting us with the problematic of a choice.
