From the Ugly to the Amazingly Beautiful

This week has been full of some really horrible and ugly events, beginning on Monday with the Boston Marathon Bombings and then the explosion at the fertilizer factory in Texas on Thursday. It can be so easy to get completely enraptured in the news coverage, as it becomes relentless!

Last week also brought with it some amazingly beautiful things for a lot of people. These events didn’t make the news so we’d never know about them. I’d like to share a couple of those wonderful life giving events.  Beth was at a writers conference a week or so ago and came home energized and inspired to continue to work on her novel. (Can’t wait to read the first draft!)  A friend of mine landed a job in a parish that will be on the cutting edge of Parish Communications and Evangelization. Hundreds of families welcomed new life to the world last week!

In the wake of traged,y we often lose sight of the amazing and beautiful things God is doing in someone’s life, because we are busy asking “Why?”

As the coverage of the past weeks news events continues to unfold and as other ugly things happen around us, keep an eye open to the amazing and the beautiful around you.
