The next time you find yourself alone, in a dark alley facing the undeniables of life, don’t cover them with a blanket, or ignore them with a nervous grin. Don’t turn up the TV and pretend they aren’t there. Funerals, divorces, illnesses, and stays in the hospital—you can’t lie about life at such times. Maybe that is why he’s always present at such moments. He is nearer than you think. – from God Came Near
