Five-Minute Friday...GRASP

It Will Never Be the Same

I am going through some things in my life right now.  Lots of reflection and introspection and feelings of loss.  This summer we have been from the cradle to the grave.  New baby, living room redo, college graduation, wedding, surgery, and funeral.  I think that about covers it.

It has left me kinda at sea.  What is next?   

I am a writer in my heart.  But with so much chaos in my's something I haven't done in too long.  I want to get back in it.  So...YAY! for Five-Minute Friday!  And thank you to my pal Cindy for the connection.

Last Sunday we went to church with our son and dil.  It's the first time we have been to their church.  It was pretty different than what we are used to, but I listened attentively to a very good sermon.  It was about grief and forgiveness, and the 23rd Psalm.  There was the usual Power Point list, and.... 

#4... "Accept that it will never be the same."   

"It will never be the same" grasped my attention like nothing has in quite awhile.  I am trying to remind myself every day when I am feeling sad and lost, that things go on.  Never the same again, but it can still be good.  Nothing is without God's hand.

I really need to GRASP that thought.
