"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross


Sometimes I wonder
If we're all in a snow globe
And God's holding us.

The author's comments:
I always had the image of God holding us in a snow globe so that we're calm, but He can also shake up our world, so that it's madness. All the while, we're still in the palm of His hand, and He's watching over us always.

(: Thanks! I didn't think much of it when I originally wrote it. To be honest, I just wanted a caption for my facebook profile picture. And that sounded cool in my mind. Haha. Then, when I got around to putting it in a haiku-form, I started to realize the depth the message could have. Funny how words can do that. (:

I meant "shaking up" as in the way that we view death or natural disasters. Some people often question why God would do things like that to their lives. It's all about perception. And thanks to both of you (:

I love this idea, but I don't think he's shaking the world up, so much as we keep doing it ourselves.

Be who you are, and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter won't mind:)
