This is a true story. It’s my story. It’s bigger than I asked for. It’s harder than I wanted. And it’s full of a love that continues to make it all worth it.
This story begins with the whispers of promise spoken by the Eternal Man, whispers that led me into the life of a quirky film teacher, named Ethan, who would turn my world upside down. Ethan was a brilliant man who led with a grace unconcerned with offense and an imagination that unleashed all the right things within me. Eventually he and I would fall deeply in love.
And then one day right in the middle of dreaming up the brilliant future we would share together as we chased creative dreams and shaped a loving family, something happened that I never saw coming, Ethan died. It happened so suddenly. Leaving my heart and my future as broken and disfigured as the car they had taken Ethan’s body from. I fought through the darkness, wrestling with the Son of God through the night.
But with confidence I can say that never once did God leave me on my own.
This story is not over, but I wanted to invite you in to see how it has unfolded thus far. I wanted to show you how love is always worth it. How God is a good Father who gives good gifts to His children, knowing just what they need. And how He has spoken profound promise in the midst of my pain.
