i ran away.

tonight i ran away.
i went to a park with swings.
and i swung on a swing.
in the pouring rain.
and i sat there swinging
i started crying.
i asked why dads leave their families.
why the love of his wife and kids isn't good enough.
and why people are hungry and dying.
why people are selfish.
and why everything that should be easy is so complicated.
i asked why the sky was so sad today.
and why i couldn't forget those memories.
and i swung higher and higher and cried and cried.
after awhile
it got dark and
i started to shiver
and also,
i was mildly scared of getting stolen...
so i went into my car and drove to a beautiful place.
very luckily, i had my special book with me.
and i re-read one of my favorites,

"Believe in God; believe that He is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend." -Mosiah 4:9

trust in Him.
ask Him.
you will get answers. :)

love, laur


  1. Hey Laur, thought you might like this quote I came upon:)
    "If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough."
