You see, my heart, it is my faith. There are times when it just doesn’t seem as though things are going quite our way. We struggle like I know so many of us do. And although things are not panning out the way we had envisioned I know there is one thing that can’t be taken from me and that’s my faith. Sometimes it’s very hard to understand why people get sick with cancer, or lose their homes or a loved one. All the really bad things that are unexplainable and often seem very unfair. However the reasons to me are simple. It’s because I can’t do this alone. I have my faith, my Heavenly Father to pick me up and carry me when I don’t feel as if I can walk on my own. This is what works for me. This is how I survive in a world that can be unfair. When I focus on the LOVE He sprinkles virtually everywhere. When I focus on the good, the blessing in each and every day. These gifts, these blessings, they are what keep me focused on Him. The fact that I wake up each day, that one thing is enough to be grateful for, just waking up. If it were only that one thing, still I would be full of gratitude because each day is a blessing, a gift. I got out of bed today. Today is good. I’m reminded of this in Lamentations 3:22 “Because of the Lord’s great LOVE we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. THEY ARE NEW EVERY MORNING.”
Today a little wind has been taken from my sail but in the big scheme of things it’s gonna be okay. My first-born son, the one who drove to Hollywood Monday night, he made it home safe. My husband the one who loves me so much he buys me weird gadgets to help my itchy skin because he wants it to get better as much or more than I do. My garden and the three pumpkin seeds I planted and have shown signs of growth in less than 7 days. The home, this home that I have full of LOVE and shared faith. The friends I have who lift me up and encourage me, they are gifts for my soul. The littlest and only girl we have who leaves me video messages full of love and expression. The second born who is completely silly when he has too much chocolate. My family who stands by me no matter what I have such wonderful parents and this includes my in-laws. These are also my heart. You know I could go on and on and on.
