The Boston Globe has posted an amazing set of pictured The year 2008 in photographs (part 1 of 3).
Some of the photographs are achingly beautiful. Others are downright brutal.
So many paint pictures of loss and suffering, the magnitude of which I can only imagine.
I have some unpleasant things going on in my life right now, over which I am losing sleep and have others praying fervently for me.
However, my problems seem so insignificant compared to what has happened, or what is going on in the world right now.
I have so much to be thankful for. God has blessed me in so many ways. And He will continue to provide.
