A tragedy has struck our family.
I struggle to see God's hand in this situation and there is so much within me that wants to turn away from Him; but my deepest core continues to know there is some plan here. All I see is pain, loneliness, orphaned children; but God sees so much more.
I recall my first level 2 formation leader saying that children of the atrium (who have had all 9 years in the atrium) have a "particular kind of hope." That when bad things happen in life and even when they choose some downright awful things, they have a hope within them that allows them to come back to the Good Shepherd.
Please pray for my family; that the next 18 months will not only go by quickly but may be drastically shortened.
May purgatory be emptied.
