Sometimes, you just don’t have any idea what other people are going through.
I recently received a couple of Facebook messages about my book, Living With a Broken Heart, that blew me away. Perry and Shirley Elkins are dear friends with whom Susan and I worshiped at the College Street Church of Christ years ago.
Waxahachie NOW Magazine is scheduled to run an article about me and my book Living With a Broken Heart in their October 2014 issue.

On September 30, 1972, Roberto Clemente became only the eleventh player in Major League Baseball history to get 3,000 career hits. Three months later, he died in a plane crash delivering humanitarian aid from his home country of Puerto Rico to earthquake-ravaged Nicaragua. He was 38 years old at the time of his death.
Clemente is a baseball legend, winning numerous awards throughout his 18-season career with the Pittsburgh Pirates: batting champion, Golden Glove, All-Star, Most Valuable Player, and of course his induction into the 3,000-hit club. The bat he used to get that 3,000th hit has been on display in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, for years.
Or has it?
I would like to share a personal goal and see if some of you might be willing to help me reach it. I recently published a book entitled Living With a Broken Heart: Rediscovering Life after Loss, chronicling my family’s journey through grief after the death of our precious daughter Ashley.
In the book, I offer hope to fellow grievers, and practical advice to those wanting to help someone who is grieving.
“In a recent study conducted by ChristianMingle.com, Christian singles between the ages of 18 to 59 were asked, ‘Would you have sex before marriage?’ The response? Sixty-three percent of the single Christian respondents indicated yes.”

Sometimes life defies explanation.
How can a heart be filled with joy and sorrow at the same time?
How can twelve years seem like an eternity, but wasn’t it just yesterday?
How can a simple photograph bring tears to a smiling face?
How can unfathomable blessing give rise to unconquerable pain?
