photos from my film trip to haiti last year
people matter. relationships matter.
the way we treat one another --- it matters.
the way we talk about one another --- matters.
in person. in secret. in confidence --- it all matters.
feelings matter. what your heart is telling you? that matters too.
and sometimes when you're really hurt,
you're tempted to question whether or not any of it matters.
you wonder - is this really that important?
am i really that important?
does any of this... matter?
sometimes in life we go to a deep dark place.
a place we don't exactly invite anyone else,
other than ourselves. because hey.
we're not sure we even want to be there.
we all have our reasons. many of which are hard to explain.
i hope i can remember that even though things can get really tough,
even though sometimes i'm just not sure any of it matters,
that it does. that WE do.
each and every one of us means something.
to each other. to our friends --- family --- a loving heavenly father.
we just can't give up. on people. on ourself. on life. on any of it.
relationships. love. tolerance. understanding. forgiveness. kindness.
it all matters. it means something. it makes all the difference.
we are innately destined for greatness.
god created each and every one of us with thoughtful purpose.
there's always room for improvement.
always time for change. or for that hard conversation.
and often, gratefully, when we take the time to try to be a little better,
we realize just how much it all matters.
