Be Jesus on Earth

Is it really that hard to be the hands and feet of Jesus on earth???




I once heard it said that crying is good for the soul because the tears cleanse the soul.  As much as I absolutely HATE crying, I must admit, I do feel better afterwards, so perhaps there is some truth to those words.

Given the many, many tears that I shed in 2018, I pray that they cultivate something beneficial in 2019!!!


Mourning into Dancing

Today is the anniversary of my Dad’s death. He died 3 days before my high school graduation in an auto accident. Though it’s been 25 years…(wow, can’t believe the time went by so FAST), it still feels like it happened yesterday.

No matter what anyone says, time does NOT heal all wounds. God comforts us in our grief and pain, but the hurt NEVER goes away…you just learn to live with it.

I’m thankful that God provided a much needed distraction this year in the form of a new job, which I began today. I had no time to mourn or think about my loss because I was too busy learning new skills at my new job. God is good!!!

Psalm 30:11 – You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy
