Today is the one-year mark since I set foot in their house.
~ as you go out from there, shake the dust off the soles of your feet ~
I made several attempts, but it just didn’t work out.
~ Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. ~
We haven’t spoken in the time it takes for the earth to travel around the sun.
~ My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. ~
This isn’t the first time in my life I’ve experienced irreconcilable differences.
~ If it be possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all men. ~
Sometimes peace isn’t possible. Compromising God’s will is too steep a price tag.
~The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable. ~
It used to be the only one I ever mourned deeply was Grandma. That’s changed.
~ Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God ~
But in each case, it took only a year. Maybe it’s just surviving all four seasons.
~ Return to Me with all your heart, And with fasting, weeping and mourning ~
I have put the black frock in storage. I have donned a cozy Disney hoodie.
~ Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. ~
The lessons I’ve learned in these 12 months are “beyond fathom.”
~ God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God ~
I’m not one to be sad on anniversaries, no matter how sad the loss. Moving on!
~ now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light ~
