Listening to K-Love this morning,
Steven Curtis Chapman singing "Live Out Loud".
Such a lighthearted song.
It occurred to me how much it's unlike his new album.
He's more somber now.
I feel the same way.
Hope's Mama put it well, how much losing a child changes you.
It's true. I'm nowhere close to being the same person I was.
I wonder if the people I knew years ago would even recognize me.
But what are we, except the sum of our experiences?
I pray that I'm reflecting the Lord's light through my grief and healing.
