Song and dance are the result of an excess energy.
When we are normal we talk,
when we are dying we 
whisper,
but when there is more in us than we contain 
we sing.
When we are healthy we walk,
when 
we are decrepit we shuffle,
but when we are beyond 
ourselves with vitality we dance.
Eugene Peterson

On Saturday my cousin had a baby. On Saturday my uncle took his life. A birth and a death in the same day. One lifetime of full potential and one hopeless end to a sad life. I have a lot on my mind this week. I’m thankful for the never failing hope I’ve found. It makes all the difference.
