It continues to amaze me how blessed I am. It also amazes me that I forget and complain so easily. I lost someone very dear to my heart this week. It was a blessing for them because the cancer had taken all but 65 pounds. That’s no way to live, that’s just existing.
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and
why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my help and my God. ~ Ps 42:11
Sometimes, that’s all we can do, Hope in God. Sometimes, it’s all we should be allowed to do. Because ‘we’ cannot fix it, so we might as well open our hands and stop holding on so damn tightly. God has this. He will make beauty out of our ashes, if we will but look up.
This is all part of the journey back to God. We have things we have to learn, things like true compassion, true friendship, empathy, turning the other cheek. You know, the hard stuff. Become humble! OMG that’s the hardest. People are proud of their pride.
I waited patiently for the Lord;
he inclined to me and heard my cry ~ Ps 40:1
Thanks for reading, oh, and be nice today to those around you. You never know how that action can bless someone.
