crown of stars

these past weeks i have felt: dashed upon, swallowed up in the depths, left gaping open, carved hollow, lost.

then, star by star, the light appeared. my crown of stars. consisting of past hours spent in prayer and meditation, the truest of friends, priesthood blessings, inspired counsel, a mother who knows, covenants made and kept.

now, my crown of stars has helped see me through the night. the lesson i will continue to learn throughout my life: patience. because "the hour is not yet", but it has been promised to me that it will come.

and it will be worth it.


  1. Beautiful. You always post the best stuff.

  2. i love you rachel. and really, what else matters? {don't answer that :)}.

  4. Love this post. And that painting. Let me know if I can do anything to help. At the very least I'm a listening ear.

  5. Thank you for your example of faith. Consider this a hug from me. Love you.
