Who You Are

This is a blog about finding the beauty in everyday. But we both know that some days, it's hard, if not impossible, to find the beauty in a situation that seems senseless, that's tragic, and that's painful.

Last Wednesday night, Brian and I learned that a couple we know from our hometown in Iowa were in a car accident. Micah is still in ICU, badly hurt, but Becca didn't make it.

Not only are we from the same hometown, we also grew up at the same church. Micah is my best friend's brother, Becca is also the sister of one of my very good friends.

This is a picture of them at my friend Ami's, Becca's sister's, wedding last fall. I know it's a goofy picture, but I'll always remember them as a very fun loving couple. 

Please be in prayer for Micah, as he recovers, for their families, the community, and especially for these three, who still very much need their mom: 

During the last several days, one particular song keeps coming to mind. JJ Heller's, "Who You Are."

Sometimes life doesn't make any sense
Full of war and pain and accidents.
He's praying,
I don't know
I don't know what You're doing,
But I know Who You are.
