I took this picture at sunset this evening as I peered outside of my hotel room in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I am here through Tuesday and will be attending a conference related to perinatal bereavement. Looking out across the horizon and seeing the majesty of God's handiwork is a reminder that He is Creator. Over the next few days, I will learn more about the very real and difficult circumstances parents face when a baby has died. I will likely relive some of my very own bittersweet grief moments myself. I am comforted by a view that tells me, as if God Himself were speaking to me..."Teske, I am so far above all of this. I am Creator of heaven and earth and every living thing and person. I know you and I know your babies. I love you."
Take a moment to recognize the beauty that surrounds you, today....wherever you are.
