Tonight

Tonight, I didn’t edit and re-write the three chapters of my thesis I was planning to. I didn’t run more statistics or write some more pages (although I did realize that it’s due in about two and a half weeks, and that rather took my breath away).

Tonight, I didn’t write the interview thank-you notes I forgot to do yesterday.

I didn’t practice my Latin dance moves in the hallway like I usually do at night to prepare for an upcoming ballroom competition.

Instead, I’m sitting here in complete silence, reading excellent online articles for no particular reason and not really absorbing any words.

But the quiet, it is good.

My heart is praying, though my mind is not right now.

I have the privilege of being still, sending love through the quiet to my grandfather who seems to be nearing heaven’s door rather suddenly. I’m not even reminiscing through particular memories, but simply knowing that he loved me well.

And these small words, that break the silence, and the few tears – they are good, too.

It’s a peace mixed with sadness, the incredible pain of being confronted again with the world’s brokenness. And yet, the promise that Christ has defeated death itself is sweet indeed.

We are blessed.
