All days

some days
life's fragile state
frightens me
other days
a state of grace
overwhelms me
 every day
I am grateful
 for God's mercy and love

circling can be bad if you keep stopping at the negative point
circling can be good if you find a positive place to pause

3 dear friends - grace mercy and peace


I took the morning for me. I had a slow breakfast and time to rest and enjoy nowhere to go immediately. When I do this I get the fearful feeling something may happen. I don’t think I will ever forget the morning of May 30, 2009. That was the morning we took off time from church. I got the call. Dad was in the ER, unresponsive. He had a stroke. We spent 11 days in Asheville. It was the beginning of the end. I will never lose that weak feeling that life is fragile and we never know what day everything will change. Now that I have lost both parents, I know the next problem will likely be me or Terry.
With Christ I will overcome my fears and grace, mercy and peace shall reign.
