I can be thankful for the journey because it makes the victory that much sweeter.
“…we will always hurt, but we must persevere and strive to thrive.”
“…what follows will shift your focus from the brick in your pocket toward the joy of the day…”
… “I want to live again. Please, God, let me live again!” It was time. It was way past time.
“…we need to fight our way out of the fog, and retrieve our precious memories.”
“If I allow anger to get the best of me, then I’ll have nothing left to give.”
“…we don’t mourn as though we have no hope.”
“What can we do when the pain of our loss competes with the joy of Jesus’ birth?”
“It’s a place we visit from time to time, but we’re not meant to live there.”
“While these ‘invasions of pain’ appear to prevent us from moving forward, they actually play a large role in our growth, renewal and recovery.”
