Don’t pray for ease, pray for endurance.
The good life always requires good bit of endurance. The only way to the best life is endurance through the hard things.
And this is true: Endurance does more than bear hard things — it turns them into good things. There is no other way to keep enduring.
Pouring out your heart — is what will actually hold your heart together.
Pouring out your life — is what will elevate your life.
Rotting places — can be places of streams of living water

Ashley of The Shine Project and her husband lost their two adoptive children earlier this year. She wrote a wonderful blog post on strengthening marriages in times of grief and crisis.
