I'm at work this weekend, and thankfully we aren't that busy. That being said, I've been doing a lot of "blog hopping". I don't know what it is, but it seems I keep landing on blogs full of sadness, loss and grief!
My heart breaks for these families. I don't know how they are managing!
I am sitting here in front of the computer at work, and I can't stop the tears from falling.
I haven't experienced the loss of a child, and I pray that I never do. I have however lived through a divorce that broke my heart, and that did some irreversible damage that I don't wish on anyone. Through the emotional roller coaster that was my life for almost 2 years, I always prayed for one thing the most: PEACE.
If I could only have a peace that passes understanding, I knew I could handle my life as a single mom...PEACE...I knew I could go on with life without my husband who I thought would be there until the end...PEACE...I knew I could learn to accept this as my life...PEACE...I knew I could handle dealing with my daughter going to stay with her daddy and his new wife for the weekend...PEACE... I knew God would take care of me...PEACE...I knew I could handle the holidays and milestones I thought we would be experiencing as a family...PEACE...I knew I could handle the fact that my idea of a family was changing forever...PEACE...I knew God would bring me through this...PEACE...peace that passes understanding...
Just wrap me in your arms and give my heart PEACE that all will be alright! As I read these blogs that break my heart, I pray that God gives them a PEACE, one that is so heavenly and sweet.
I found this on another blog, and I hope it speaks to you too:
giver of hope,
walk among those
who see no possibility of a life
unscarred by violence
bringer of light
sit down beside those
who see only darkness
and have barely a candle flame
bestower of love
carry the ones
who can no longer walk
without stumbling over grief
sender of peace
come to those
who walk continually
on the shards of war
that litter our world
give hope, bring light, bestow love victorious
