poems, pt iii

A link to my previous year’s post with the final poem in the series, The Resurrection.  I love that Mary Karr’s depiction of the events is so visceral and painfully human.

I think the observation of Lent and the progress of Holy Week takes on deeper meaning with each year, and with each new scar my heart acquires.  I understand more fully the extent of the pain caused by the weight of my sin, because I feel the effects my own and others’ sin, carved into my heart.

there is love.  there is healing.  there is forgiveness.  there is hope.

  1. Hey Sara,
    I just had a chance to catch up on your blog. I feel like you can put into words what I feel also, but can’t articulate as clearly. Let’s please talk soon. I miss you.
    love,
    lauren.
