Many times I have been asked how I can be so full of joy. It seems so complicated to those I meet while we are working in our ministry of hope, healing, and love. I found it hard to wrap my mind around it myself at times. I had never known Joy or Peace, but it was something I had longed for all my life. Certainly I would never have imagined that it would come from the tragedy that our family experienced... but there it is. God is with me in everything I do, everywhere I go... when I wanted to blame it all on him I ultimately knelt down for complete surrender so that he could carry me through the most painful thing I would ever have to endure. He did carry me and there was a day that I realized his steps were the ones that kept me going, kept me lifted, kept me encouraged, gave me strength, and gave me hope. There is no separation... the total essence of my being... my love for God and his love for all his children.
Thank you Father for allowing me to know joy, peace, and love....
What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
