why it hurts so much.

nine

Mothers and fathers and daughters and wives. Families. Children. Lost in an instant.

At the end of the day, this is why it’s so heart-wrenching. Why it’s unreal. Why it hurts so much. Why it’s inspired such an outpouring of grief. Why I can’t stop thinking about it, shedding tears over it, grieving, imagining the sheer tragedy of it all.

Death isn’t natural.

At all. 

But it’s not forever. My faith tells me that. A Biblical hope tells me that. I will sit in that hope for all the families that lost someone dear to them. But I will also continue to grieve for them.

Revelation 21:3,4
