I got a new hair cut.

I have a lot to write about but don't really feel up to it at the moment so here's some stuff that I've been watching/listening/reading that's been making me think.

The Struggle

She just can’t believe.
She can’t believe there is a God
who made her poor.
She Can’t believe God
doesn’t want her 8 children
to eat tonight.
She can’t believe. she won’t.
As she looks back on her life
full of broken years
she just can’t believe.
She can’t believe there exists someone
somewhere
something
who is at the same time
all-powerful
and all-loving
because she has no power
and she has never felt loved
and so she can’t believe, she won’t.
it would be far too painful to believe

But she has to believe
she must, she needs to believe
to get through the day
she has to believe that
the future of her 8 kids
isn’t hanging on her ability to provide
She has to believe because
she knows she can’t do it alone
she has to believe
she must
She has to believe that
in each tough break is grace
that each good thing is a blessing
and that there is a reason to hope
for things to get better
she has to believe
she must, she needs to believe
it would be far too painful not to believe.
