Dona is doing this great "Thought of the Day". Well Friday's really spoke to me. Here's the link to this journal entry: http://journals.aol.com/delela1/BlueSkiesandGentleBreezes/entries/1302
Here's the thought: "Every life has a measure of sorrow, and sometimes this is what awakens us."
I think we all get caught up in our own sorrow's. I know I've had my own sorrow's and some are more than others. My biggest is the loss of my little girl, Jordyn. To me there is no greater pain, heart ache, or loss than the death of your child. Through all that pain though, life continues. I have been blessed over and over in this life. I have God, I gave my heart to Jesus, I have 2 beautiful boys, an AMAZING husband who adores me, and in general a great life. We have times where money's tight, things are always full of joy, yet my focus can't constantly be on sadness. Losing Jordyn was horrible and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I grew so much from all that Jordyn went through. Sure I'd prefer she still be alive, but you know she's not and that's just a fact. I can't make her living and breathing, but I can keep her alive. I can keep her memory going. I've learned a lot since her death and through the sorrow of losing Jordyn, I did wake up to many things. I saw the many amazing people who are caring and giving and who truly care. I saw God's love truly and fully for ME. That even though I couldn't have been in any more emotional pain, he held me tight and never let me go.
How gracious God is.
Thank you Dona for sharing this thought.
