April 1st: Healing is No Joke...Just Joy!
I had been able to experience the joys, fears, delights of my precious Sam for 12 short weeks, yet all the joy, all the lessons, all the amazing things that have taken place because of that loss, that experience, of that deep sorrow in my life...
Well...I am a better, stronger, richer, deeper person...woman...wife...mom...servant to God because of that pain..that sorrow!
I can't be angry with God because ALL of my life's experiences even those that caused me hurt, pain, sorrow or even harm....have all lead me to...love, redemption, peace, joy, gratitude, faith, hope, commitment, endurance...and so many more.
Take today's date as an example:
APRIL FOOLS DAY...
Each year it has fallen on a day within lent. This year it is in Holy Week. I will enter the next three days with great appreciation, healing, hope, love, deep understanding of being a mom! One year it was Palm Sunday. Another year it was the Easter weekend the year we were asked to be god-parents to some dear friends children. Wow...that was a powerful year!
I feel so blessed to know my God so loved me that he gave us his only son! Now that is somehtng to live for!!!
Join me here for the next three days to prepare and celebrate the Triduum...to reflect on His mercy....His Joys and Sorrows....
Blessings, hugs, and lots of prayers always,
