Some of this was me, some was people I loved.
All of it was bad. All of it was ugly.

My life has also included:
Joy

These also happened to me and people I love.

I choose my life today.
With the good, the bad, and the ugly.


Because, in Christ, the Good always outweighs the bad and the ugly.

  1. This reminds me of the lists in Galatians 5 of the works of the flesh vs the fruit of the Spirit. His concluding statement: “If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.” Great post Kathleen and great reminder to keep looking up!
