These last few days have come with sadness, heavy hearts and not too many smiles. I'm not too much of a cry er, but I think that I have maybe dropped a few pounds from the tears that I have shed in the past 48 hours. So at least I am a few pounds lighter, right? (see, I always try to look at the bright side of things!)
And speaking of the bright side of things, I just have to remember that "This too shall pass".
I have been thinking a lot about my dear sweet friend who has been trying so long to have a baby. She longs to hold her very own bundle of joy in her arms. She wants this so much that her heart is aching. Each time that she hears of someone that has just learned that they are expecting, her heart sinks to her feet. She needs a baby, she wants a baby and she deserves a baby. She will be the best mom. Her husband will be a spectacular daddy. Someday, this sadness that they are experiencing, "it too shall pass". Someday, She will hold a sweet smelling, soft skinned baby in her arms and feel love and happiness. The sadness will be gone-"This Too Shall Pass".
I think about the sadness that I have been feeling these last few days. I think about the tears that have been shed. AND I think of how minor my problems are compared to others who are hurting so badly. I think about how thankful I am that I have a Heavenly Father that can offer me comfort when I so desperately need it. My sadness consumes me. Anxiety consumes me. I hate that. I hate it that Satan attacks me when he sees that I am at my weakest. BUT, in the midst of all of my sadness, I keep telling myself, "This too shall pass". Because it will. Things will be back to my "normal". I will stop worrying about what others think of me and be content in the reality of who I really am. "This too shall pass"
This too shall pass...
I have been SO consumed with anxiety and sadness that I have not been able to fully enjoy my children. The Devil is literally robbing me of my joy. How dare him? My kids and my husband...they are my world. I will no longer allow others to cause me so much heartache. I will no longer give Satan the satisfaction. My children's childhoods, they too will pass. I am going to cherish every moment. Every smile. Every frown. Every laugh. Every tear. My kids have my full attention. I don't want to miss a thing because, This too shall pass.
