To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under heaven. Eccs. 3:1
This Christ-life has the potential because of HIM – His Sacrifice and our Kingdom Calling, to take us into places of the most exquisite beauty…..Love, Music, Paintings, Imagination, Photography, various depths of writing……in fact ALL of life’s fullest appreciations.
But – also an acute understanding of human fragility and unexpected possibilities of invasive vines, which attempt to block the beautiful outpouring of their life.
Yesterday in one day we, David and I, experienced the bitter-sweet two sides of this Christ-life.
As a mother, grandmother connecting personally with our daughter and her family (husband and two children) was ABSOLUTE JOY. After months of Covid 19 separation we had a wonderful day.
The ‘other’ side too we all must journey is also very REAL!
Our beautiful, 1st born child – our daughter- has a life-impacting terminal illness. This has suddenly invaded her life and effects everyone who loves her.
BITTER-SWEET – the Certainly of GOD above it all. Beauty and precious the memories we now forge to life.
BITTER or heart-searing is the KNOWING that time may be short.
EVERYONE HAS ONLY this day and for all who journey WITH and in CHRIST.
……………. May His Will and His Life be the ultimate determining for A L L our life ‘and for all life journeys.
LOVE IS ETERNAL !
