God never takes his eyes away

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.pngI recently read a book titled “Like silver refined”. In one of the chapters, the author discusses the process of the purification of silver. What caught my eye is that the silversmith not only ensures that the right amount of heat is applied, but also never takes his eyes away from the silver.

I am one of those people who can block bad memories from my mind, and somehow with time I forget the details of an incident that brought me pain.

However, I always remember, second by second, the details of the events leading to my very first miscarriage.
