The shatter of a broken heart


Sadness, hurt, brokeness, it can come at you in all forms. Heartbreak, sickness, depression, life struggles,darkness, weeping, the utter silence of someone gone. Why do relationships struggle? Why is darkness trying to creep into families? Why are so many hurting?
I ask myself this question as I hear about families breaking apart or someone has been unfaithful or just any pain that can be going on. It’s just like the new normal now. But when it hits close to someone you love it makes it even harder.

We had some news in our family about a relationship heartbreak and it just makes me so sad. I can think of how many times my own husband and I have fought to keep ourselves together and just when everyday life gets in the way it makes it that much tougher.
I’m always trying to find the silver lining that even amongst bad news and the pain that comes along with being alive there’s is still so much beauty. We find beauty from the pain.

My hubby and I had the privilege of going to a Gary Allen concert at our state fair the beginning of September and it was pretty awesome. I’m not too much of a country girl but my hubs is a big country fan so I listen to some on occasion. One singer who tops my country chart is Gary. His songs speak to you! You can feel the intensity in his lyrics. I love it! I have been pondering his words and if you get a chance listen.
He has this one song “life ain’t always beautiful”. He sang that at the fair and Its one I relate to in our life. He has so many more good ones too, if you have not listened to him you really need to. I think he’s even better in concert.

For my family members who are struggling. I just pray and keep them in my thoughts and I hope they know I love them so much no matter the situation. Good or bad it’s about love and forgiveness.

Artist: Gary Allan
Song: Life Ain’t Always Beautiful
Album: Tough All Over
Life ain’t always beautiful
Sometimes it’s just plain hard
Life can knock you down, it can break your heart

Life ain’t always beautiful
You think you’re on your way
And it’s just a dead end road at the end of the day

But the struggles makes you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has its own way of takin’ it sweet time

No,life aint always beautiful
Tears will fall sometimes
Life aint always beautiful
But it’s a beautiful ride

Life aint always beautiful
Some days I miss your smile
I get tired of walkin’ all these lonely miles

And I wish for just one minute
I could see your pretty face
Guess I can dream, but life don’t work that way

But the struggles makes me stronger
And the changes make me wise
And happiness has its own way of takin’ its sweet time

No, life ain’t always beautiful
But I know I’ll be fine
Hey, life ain’t always beautiful
But its a beautiful ride
What a beautiful ride
