From Grief to Joy

A Journey Back to Life & Living

When I lost my husband and both parents, one right after the other, I was thoroughly shaken. I didn't know who I was, or what to do next, so I started asking, "What do you want me to do now, Lord?" and I kept asking over and over. Eventually the answers did come, not as I expected, but as I needed, and it made all the difference. What I learned and where that path took me was so amazing that I decided to share my experience with others in the hope that it would make their own path easier. As much

As unwelcome as adversity may be, it does shape and define us in ways that nothing else can. Life does have a way of presenting us with what we most need to learn when we most need to learn it.

I saw her standing there amid the flowers, basking in their beauty, utterly lost in a moment of joy. She didn't know I saw her talk to them. She didn't know I heard her laugh.
