Just a Grain Of Sand....

When you figure out LOVE is all that matters after all,
It sure makes everything else seem so small....

We have climbed a LOT of mountains since Gracie came home, and we have looked for a lot of answers in regards to many different parts of our lives...What I have realized is that we don't have all of the answers and we never will, but LOVE is all that matters. Maybe that is my answer to many things...our struggle in getting Garrett home, our very personal family matters, my mother's death, the devastating earthquake in central China...

Carrie Underwood's music obviously effects me very deeply. It is funny that I can turn to music to find answers to life's toughest questions. It is also through music that I find God. In listening, I find peace and comfort. My heart and my arms are hurting for Garrett tonight. I want him to be at home with us so badly right now. I know I need to just sit back and wait. It is all just a grain of sand. There are so many people in the world that are hurting, that are hungry, that are grieving such a tremendous loss. My life is uncomplicated when it comes right down to it. I have no right to complain. Sometimes, I just need a reminder. The glass is full. God has the answers. The mountains are just grains of sand. I love this song tonight.
