[Job] said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there; the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” - Job 1:21 (NRSV)
The ultrasound tech moved the wand over my abdomen. With a concerned look on her face, she said, “I am sorry; there is no heartbeat. The baby is gone.” My heart sank as tears rolled down my face. I nodded that I understood, even though I didn’t understand at all....
I will praise God in both my sorrow and my joy.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
