getting lost, wrecked and strengthened

i had some fun getting lost in the streets of Brussels today…
shopping, tasting, café hopping, exploring.  
while trying to find my way back to the hotel to meet-up with colleagues,
 i took a turn down a charming little side street
and found myself in a courtyard with nothing but this sculpture. 
just me, her, the Lord and an overwhelming sense of
gratitude and perspective for why i'm even here and what we are trying to do.  
that this thing is not easy and there are many days/moments
when all we can do is drop to our knees in prayer or curl up and weep.  
a beautiful reminder that this is the very essence of thriving…
living and loving so deeply that it can wreck us and strengthen us at the same time.
