~~I am reposting this from Jen Hatmaker’s blog. You can find her blog here. I enjoy reading her stories and reading her blog. I do not agree with everything that she believes in, but I do agree with a lot of it. This post describes what our family goes through starting November 1-January 1 every single year. It is real. It is hard. It has the tendency to suck the joy out of celebrating, but God is bigger! He has got this and He is teaching my entire family a lesson through these hard times.~~
This is the link ^^^^ to go straight to her blog. I did not ask permission to copy/paste her blog post, here, so I just did the link. Please read it.
