When Death Reminds You To Live
When my soul is touched by someone and my perspective is changed by their life, I feel a need to share.
Loving bigger and caring less about things that don't matter is a beautiful way to live, but sometimes it takes death to live that way. Death of someone you adore, or the death of your own life.
Breathing deeper and looking longer usually happens when we are reminded that this life is short. Usually that reminder is one of the most difficult things we will go through in life.
In some miraculous way, God brings beauty out of the most heart wrenching circumstances. He reminds us to be desperate for him and thankful in the most intricate detail of our day.
I have never met Kara Tippetts in person, but she has touched my life in a deep way through her book, The Hardest Peace.
Today she is dying, but really she is living. She is living in a way that most of us forget to.
Kara also has a beautiful blog, Mundane Faithfulness. I hope you are encouraged and your perspective is changed after reading about her journey.
