“Suffering is everywhere. Don’t ever think it isn’t. So are miracles. Don’t ever think they aren’t.”
I came across this quote about a month ago, and it has frequently crossed my mind since. Working in child welfare, it is impossible to deny or ignore the pervasiveness of pain and hurt in the world.
However, at the same time, I have had the privilege of experiencing first-hand some extremely beautiful ways God works- a foster parent’s self-sacrificial generosity, a child’s resilient joy, or a birth parent’s small steps towards a new life.
Incredible sorrow exists, but so do incredible miracles.
