Thanksgiving Thursday, Hard Eucharisteo

Liesl: “What do you do when you…love someone? I mean, when you stop loving someone…or he stops loving you?”

Maria: “Well, you cry a little. Then you wait for the sun to come out. It always does.” The Sound of Music


This week I have offered up hard Eucharisteo and the sacrifice of praise. But life’s like that sometimes. Sometimes Unexpected Heroes fall hard, relationships are not what they seemed, and it’s time to let go.



…We lament visceral pain, …but praise God that there is a doctor in the House! And He knows your name and He holds the stars and His girds underneath and He never lets go and He is Joy and He is Light and He is the warrior who defeats the dark.

…Joy is dangerous – it’s igniting and contagious and otherworldy and it wins demon wars. And it’s mere ploy to say joy is Pollyanna – because joy is revolutionary: it goes straight against the way this dark world spins.” Ann Voskamp
