"it kind of hurts"

"The art I create is an image of beauty in pain"

my sister-in-law wrote that in her artist statement on her website. she creates beautiful pieces. but, as she stated, they are all, or almost all, inspired by the pain she is experiencing from burying her 3 day old daughter.
life is heartbreaking. it is painful. it hurts. and yet our god has not left us to drown in our sorrows, to suffer in the agony of loss and grief. he has blessed us with beauty. despite the pain. in the pain. as a result of the pain. it doesnt diminish the pain. but it gives us a clearer view of our god.
