Last night I had a hard time falling asleep. I have a lot on my mind lately, things that I’d actually love to share but need more time to organize my thoughts. There is one thing that I want to be said here and that is that I am resilient. I don’t give up easy and setbacks only push me to work harder. This is in regards to all “boo hoos” I wrote in my last post.
Also, I briefly mentioned that Denys and I are going to marriage counseling. Our marriage isn’t ending, nor is it even close, although that can be an initial reaction when you think of marriage counseling. Like any marriage, however, we have our issues and we felt a strong need to have a therapist help us work through them. Last night’s session was especially eye opening and I feel like we are both learning so much about ourselves. To anyone and everyone out there wondering, THERAPY IS AMAZING! Especially, when you allow yourself to be open and vulnerable. More to come on that.
Now, since I’m having a hard time organizing my thoughts at the moment, I thought that I’d share this one because I can’t stop reading it:
“Sisters, I do not know why we have the many trials that we have, but it is my personal feeling that the reward is so great, so eternal and everlasting, so joyful and beyond our understanding that in that day of reward, we may feel to say to our merciful, loving Father, “Was that all that was required?” I believe that if we could daily remember and recognize the depth of that love our Heavenly Father and our Savior have for us, we would be willing to do anything to be back in Their presence again, surrounded by Their love eternally. What will it matter, dear sisters, what we suffered here if, in the end, those trials are the very things which qualify us for eternal life and exaltation in the kingdom of God with our Father and Savior?” Linda S. Reeves, “Worthy of Our Promised Blessings”
I hope that this uplifts and enlightens you as much as it has for me. Next to come is Halloween decor, so get excited!
