THINGS I'M LEARNING
Isn't it truly amazing that we never grow too old to learn. When I was a child I thought it would be so wonderful to someday get old enough to finish school because then I would know it all and would not have to keep learning.
I've been reading two books that have inspired, helped and healed. One is the book that Becky Povich sent me called "I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye" by Noel Brook and the other is one I heard about from my blogger gal pals called "Why My Child Lord?" by Michielle Sullivan which I ordered from the author who had also lost a child from suicide, which I sadly was presented with this week as the cause of death of my son Jake.
I have learned and understand how I can have Joy in my life while not Happy. I cannot be happy that my son has died though I know where he is and am happy for that. I can know Joy and I can receive Peace day by day just by staying in Jesus and praising Him through my loss.
One of my favorite sites is Bing and I can usually find some awesome images there to reflect the way I am feeling on any given day and these are some of the images that speak to the way I feel this morning.
I hope and pray each and every one of you my sisters will experience JOY in your day today! Because each comment you leave me sure add to my Joy~
Love you all,,,,,mizmollye and Punkin too!
