I Stand All Amazed

I'm sitting here staring at the screen. Blogs are kinda funny to me. I originally started this as a, "Hey! This is what we're up to" and now its become more of a blind, "I'm sending this into the oblivion" deal. Most times, I forget that people actually read this. I honestly don't know why they find my ramblings interesting, but its always a shock to receive input. Not that I don't appreciate it, I am just always surprised.

I've been thinking a lot lately. Mostly about how crazy life can be and what kinds of things we're supposed to learn from our challenges. It has made me think a lot about God and what this life really is.

I am always amazed at the challenges that people go through. But even more so, I am amazed at the people going through them. A crisis/challenge/trial in itself can be devastating. Emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually... One would expect a person to break while experiencing such madness. And maybe we do break.

What amazes me the most, is when that person that has been pushed down & shattered finds the strength to stand up and walk. That sheer act of will. Each agonizing step. It makes me a believer. It makes me hope. It makes me want to stand. It makes me want to reach out. It makes me remember that life can be beautiful.
