Beauty in Hard Times By Tamsen Grace Seeing the beauty in the fresh fallen snow this morning, got me thinking about the beauty that has come into my life from the cancer and divorce. I see the many ways that this has made me into a better person and even in some ways improved my life. I am not saying that things are not still hard, starting over is never easy and the aftermath of all this is something I will struggle with for many years to come. I see a value to my days and to my life that I didn’t appreciate before . This is the greatest love story of my life, I have finally learned to love and appreciate myself. It is so amazing that God can take something so horrendous and use it to transform us into something beautiful. I look at myself now and I think I may be a little more scarred from my battle, but I am more beautiful than ever before .
