happy st patrick's day

In Time of Sorrow...
May you see God's light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
when the shadows fall—
You do not walk alone.

I was looking up Irish sayings today, to post on my FB, and came across this one.  It spoke to me because it has been such a time of sorrow around here, but then I realized...I don't feel sorrowful today!  I'm not sure when the change happened in my heart, but I am no longer consumed with sadness.  It started happening when I forgave Jeffrey, and started praying again.  I did realize that something was changing in me when my husband was preaching last Sunday, and I didn't cry.  I even heard a song that made me think of Jeffrey and Jeremiah, and I didn't break down.  My heart feels lighter, and the gloom I felt around me for the last two years seems to have gone away.  I guess forgiveness really does make a difference.  I had no idea that forgiving someone could change my whole outlook on life. 
Thank you , Jesus, for forgiving me...and teaching me that no one is beyond forgiveness.  And thank you for putting some joy and sunshine into my life again!

  1. That is wonderful! I'm glad it is lifting. Phil 4:6-8 is so true, it's unexplainable. Love you!
