That is how life goes – we send our children into the wilderness. Some of them on the day they are born, it seems, for all the help we can give them. Some of them seem to be a kind of wilderness unto themselves.” From Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
I’ve read this over several times, but don’t really know what I can add. The sentiments expressed just really got to me.
My hope is in the LORD.
He turns a wilderness into pools of water, And dry land into water springs. – →Psalm 107:35
