Psalm 23:4

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil for you are with me.

The "valey" of my life has been very dark the past several months, very few bright spots but there have been some. That is when I think that God, be He or She, is more present to me. Not that the Higher Power in my life isn't always present, just that, looking back, that is when I suppose that I have been more aware.
There have been so many dark shadows and dark valleys since October but, I am told, God is with me in all of these times and valleys and shadows, even the darkest of the midnight shadows. You see, someone who was in the Navy with my husband when they were just kids contacted us before Ed's death and has continued to be in contact since then. He and his wife have been through very difficult times but continue to have faith.
My e-mail friend, Joe, and his wife are still facing very difficult situations but continue to have faith and believe in God's will and that good comes out of all things if we allow God to be part of it. Their dark shadows in deep valleys are greater than mine but they keep on putting one foot in front of the other and have happy times and feel blessed.
I strive to be more like Joe and his wife.

    Just wanted to stop by and say hi. How's things going for you? God is always with us. Sometimes we can feel His presence, sometimes not, but He is always there. I pray you can get a good nights sleep.

    It takes a bright light to cast a dark shadow. And the darker the shadow, the more brilliant the light when you finally come out of it. Stay strong, my lovely friend. Strong women cry. Strong women feel weak a lot. But, much like coal turning into a diamond, strong women persevere and come out transformed and dazzling. emoticon
