We all have a choice to believe in something, I choose to believe in God!

joy without pain<>pain without joy

I have absolutely no fear of dying. I'm not scared of it at all!! All I can think about when the subject comes up is, 'I'll be meeting my Jesus!' Yay (and she giggles with delight)

But that doesn't change the fact that I have a job to do while I'm here. I have love to give and people are hurting enough to receive it. I love you hurting, lost, dying, and undone!! I love you crippled and sad. I love you blind and deaf. I love you unlovable.

I can count on half of one hand the people in my life that I really believe have a 'love' for me. If that's all I get, then I accept it as a gift. And a beautiful gift it is!! Love.

I have this little part of me that's bigger than the rest of me. It's my most treasured part. Where forgiveness flows and love is all-consuming. The flowers of my life bloom there, but it's my tears that water them.

One thing I've learned in life, you can't have joy without pain. But you can have pain without joy. As Jesus' disciples said, "This is a hard saying, who can hear it?"
