Sadness and Joy Unite
SADNESS & JOY~
both occupying the same
space in my heart.
for the birth of our new granddaughter~
changing our lives.
And then a great
as the life of a friend has suddenly ended~
that is life changing for his wife & children
& all who know him.
Oh the deep sadness I have for this family
as their lives have come to a halt
as the suddenness of their great loss
has entered into their lives.
The Life Cycle~
the JOY of birth
the SADNESS of death~
both enters all of our lives
we can't control the timing of either.
Stillness takes over my heart in the midst,
as there is nothing you can do.
And that is when
I feel the presence of
In the shock of the loss
In the joy of the miracle of the birth of a baby.
all in the same breath.
remains true in both
SADNESS & JOY
"When anxiety was great within me, YOUR consolation brought me joy" (Psalm 94:19).
Hug the ones you love
Love the ones you hug
all we have are the moments right in front of us.
Pray for this family,
as GOD knows their names,
GOD to pour out
during this time of great grief.
