Sadness and Joy Unite


SADNESS & JOY~

both occupying the same

space in my heart.

JOY~

for the birth of our new granddaughter~

changing our lives.

And then a great

SADNESS ~

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

unannounced

as

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

GOD~

In the shock of the loss

&

In the joy of the miracle of the birth of a baby.

Uncontrollable

JOY

&

Uncontrollable

SADNESS

all in the same breath.

But

GOD

remains true in both

uniting

SADNESS & JOY

together ~

"When anxiety was great within me, YOUR consolation brought me joy" (Psalm 94:19).

Hug the ones you love

&

Love the ones you hug

as

all we have are the moments right in front of us.

Pray for this family,

as GOD knows their names,

for

GOD to pour out

HIS comfort

during this time of great grief.
