    A different perspective on life’s struggles.

    A wise man once said,

    “Whatever came to me, I looked on as God’s gift for some special purpose.

    If it was a difficulty,

    I knew He gave it to me to struggle with, to strengthen my mind and faith.”

    That idea has sweetened and helped me all of my life.

    I like that. I believe that many of God’s gifts come in strange wrappings and it is often only in hindsight that we recognize what a gift it was.

    When I was young, had been married three years, and my husband had his leg amputated due to a logging accident…I dealt with the many issues and made it through it. My Mother-In-Law did tell me that God didn’t give us more than he thought we could handle.

    When the next catastrophic event happened, I quit believing in God because he just couldn’t let this happen after all we had been through already.

    When I finally sobered up in 1988 I found a God of My Understanding and I found my Spiritality on a dark day during a thunderstorm. I was watching the rain and wind out my window and it seemed a bright light came through the clouds right into my heart and I felt so good and peaceful. I decided my God was in my heart and he heard every prayer I said.:newangel:

    :Meditate: One of the most helpful things I do is meditate and use the Serenity Prayer as I feel I need it to understand what I can do or can’t do about a situation.
