Scarred Joy is dedicated to those who have experienced and endured suffering in life and want to talk about it. This includes experiences that cause others to shudder over such sadness as the "loss" or "death" of children, whether this be "stillborn", "born sleeping", died shortly after birth, lingering illness or tragic accidental death or even murder. Followers may feel free to speak about how grief and suffering have impacted one's life.
There are times in life that try us and sometimes beyond measure. Scarred Joy speaks into the amazing power of joy in spite of life experiences that may crush us. Scarred Joy speaks of pain people experience in life without putting the proverbial positive spin so common today. Some of the posts may express the rawness of the pain people are experiencing without downplaying its intensity. Perhaps some will be “stuck” so to speak in their pain and for the time being are “surviving” while screaming at heaven in the absence of joy! Joy seems to be more appreciated by those who know what pain/suffering/hardship/brokenness/etc. is and have survived or are trying to survive in spite of it. I invite replies.
