I’ve been waiting a long time to post this:

A piano created to make beautiful music, now silent.

A sandy beach waiting for sandy feet, now desolate.

A treasured prize, tarnished and scratched.

A rose, its beauty stomped out on the pavement.

A wrapped gift meant to be opened and enjoyed, torn apart.

A peaceful home, wrecked and bleeding.

A book meant to be read, now closed on the shelf.

A photo capturing a subtle smile, glass shattered.

A vase of flowers, crippled from neglect.

A scrapbook of memories, thrown out with the trash.

A candle, its wax dripping as the flame flickers away.

A promise, a future, a life, ripped away.

A trusting and faithful heart, broken.

Eternal hope, true joy, and unbroken promises come from the Lord.

“I am the Lord your God. You’re my beloved child.

I will keep you. I will hold you through the night.

I will love you. I will lead you to the light.”

-Aletheia Band, Harrisonburg VA


  1. I am moved beyond words. God will “hold you through the night and lead you” just as Cameron wrote. Remember . . . “I know the plans I have for you” and Ps. 32:8 “I will instruct you , says the Lord according to the right pathway. I will uphold you with my right hand.”

  2. so sorry for your broken heart, sweet girl. I can’t wait to see what your future holds. the life you were meant to live. I know it will wonderful and as amazing as you are! you are loved~

    Psalm 34:17-18

    The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
