God is working

I know He never stops working.  In each of us.  Daily.

But, sometimes it is easier to see Him.  Hear Him.  Easier than other times. 

He has all week.  And that is not a bad thing!  It's a great thing.  It's something I need/want/long for right now.  Always, really. 

But, He is working in me.  Helping me to see clearer. 

I have been following this inspirational lady and her story of joy, loss, grief and healing. 

And her words always touch me.  Today, they penetrated my soul.  She wrote,

Grief and loss come for us all in one form or another sooner or later.


Not a single one of us chooses it, but I honestly believe we can make a choice in how we respond.


We can sweep it under the rug, pretend like it never happened, like it doesn't faze us in the least, hoping we can hold our breath and duck our heads underwater until the storm passes.


Or we can stare it in the face, welcome it, embrace it, because this is also what it means to be fully alive, to be one who loves.


Kirsten Michelle Petermann is living proof of the latter.  And I thank her for entering my life through this crazy world we call BlogLand.  I am, and will forever be, changed by her life experiences.  And her eloquent and inspiring words.
