the heart of life is good

jasen and i were having a conversation today about some good friends who are going through an extremely difficult time. even using the word “difficult” offers a disservice to their situation. everyday i feel like i hear something else being thrown at them. reaching my breaking point, i finally uttered out loud, “enough already, God! move on to someone else.”

not having the right words for people who are hurting is hard. we all want to bring comfort by saying, “it will get better.” but maybe it won’t get better. i have to believe that there is beauty in this world, and all things are created in a reflection much bigger than you or i.

when i was driving home from the gym i heard this song. i hope it brings comfort.

The Heart Of Life
John Mayer

I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There’s things you need to hear
So turn off your tears and listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won’t all go away, it should
But I know the heart of life is good

You know it’s nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won’t all go away, it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who’s misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good

I know it’s good

We’re in repair, we’re not together but we’re getting there.
