Last night was...

LONG...

and

AWFUL.

Why? I don't know... just because. I'm learning things like this happen with the grieving process.  There are peaks and valleys... we just hope for a trend that is continuously upward. Hopefully we've just crossed the deepest valley we'll have to wade through.





The GOOD news: the Sun won. 

Morning came. The darkness was gone. The long night was over.

I have never felt more grateful for that one constant truth I can always depend on - the dark night is always followed by a beautiful dawn, speaking in literal and spiritual terms. I find great comfort in that as I try to make sense of the chaos in my heart.

Psalms 30:5 - weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

If anyone can make it thru the night it is you two. Your testimony and strength is something we all strive for. I am sure it doesn't seem that way but put trust in yourself that you can make it thru this. You are loved.

I am so sorry that you had a tough night. (That is one of those thorns on the roses.) I'm glad that a new day brought some peace and comfort to you. You and Marc can get through this together. There will be very hard days. But with the strength of your testimony and your faith in the Plan of Salvation you will continue to see and feel the comfort that you need. My love to you both.

I am so sad to hear about your hard night. I know there will be more, but it makes me so sad that you have them. You are loved and prayed for a lot I hope that will give you comfort in the really hard time.
