The past week has been one of the hardest weeks I've had for a long long time.
I don't want to go into why it's been difficult but there were moments when I didn't think I could do it.
I spent a lot of time on my knees and a lot of time pleading with the Lord.
On Wednesday I decided to go to the temple.
There at the temple I got to experience something so special and so personal that I kinda feel forever changed.
The Lord gave me a little taste of his tender mercy that night and I knew things would be okay.
As much as it still hurts I am grateful for the Lords sweet assurance that he has never left my side and that he is there to pick up the pieces and help to put them back together again.
Although I hope to never have to relive this again and I never want to look back I am grateful for the view I can now see because of this trial.
I am grateful for Tender Mercies.
