Sadness seems to be encompassing me of late. In part it has to do with the fact that we have difficulties we are struggling with, as do all families. In part it has to do with the atmosphere of the political world. Lawmakers seem to be more and more intent on controlling our lives rather than protecting our freedoms. It makes me wonder what kind of world I will leave my children in, which makes me sorrowful. So I ask you… What do you do to get over this feeling and continue on with your responsibilities?
For me, I need to seek the wisdom of my parents. I know I can rely on their experiences and understanding. My husband is the most referred to however, and I am so blessed to be soaking in his honest childlike faith. I focus too much on the sadness and the hurt and he can always find a positive perspective on whatever is happening in our lives. There is something to be said for the innocence that he exudes when helping me to see through the evil of the world.
“God helps His children come home,” was the most recent thought he shared with me. This is what I mean by his childlike faith. I find myself so often thinking that I wish to be just like my husband when I grow up. He is a pillar of strength for our family and he is a steady beacon in this tumultuous atmosphere. This life is a difficult journey, but I am so grateful to be sharing it with him.
