the rain.

“He will come to us like rain.” hosea 6:3

the broken lightbulb.

“we are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.” -ernest hemingway

3 nails. 3 holes. 3 days.

love overcomes all (like the sun comes over the mountains) by gage howell

this is the first of the symbols in “i am”. it’s one of my favorites (not just cause i’m fond of the artist 😉).

if you know me, you know i love the sky. i love sunsets (especially in indiana), sunrises, anything that has to do with beautiful scenery. you can make anything symbolic. one thing i’ve heard about a sunrise that i loved was “the sun will rise and we will try again”.

today might have been rough, but tomorrow, the sun will rise and you have a clean slate. tomorrow, a fresh breath, another beginning.

in Scripture it says “pain may endure through the night, but joy comes in the MORNING.” morning = sunrise. sunrise = new day, new chances.

your pain may last past the night, but tomorrow is new. claim your sunrise.
