Going for a run, pushing my body to physical exhaustion, while listening to the rhythmic pounding of my feet can also be good medicine. It makes me feel alive and I recognize there are things I can do, things I can change and become. I can gain a different perspective, have a better attitude, practice patience, be a better friend, but there are some things I cannot change. I cannot take back things that have already taken place or words already spoken. I cannot change anyone else. I can't change their health, their decisions, perspective or perceptions. What I can do, is decide how I will respond to it, and then all that is left to do is turn it over to The Lord.
Sometimes the journey we are on seems lonely and we are sure that no one understands how we feel or what we are going through. It's true that our lives will have struggles and trials, but a good friend keeps reminding me that our Father in Heaven wants us to be happy. That's the plan, so we need to do what we can to make it happen and then allow Him to fill in the blanks.
I am so grateful this week for the sweet friends that I have who have allowed themselves to be instruments in His hands in showing so much love for me and my family. While we have had so many things to be grateful for lately, there has been a lot of hard as well. As I have shared a few of our struggles and successes on my blog and through Facebook the responses I have gotten back have been overwhelming.
Below are some of the comments from Facebook just for my own record
