Sad Memories, Happy Times

“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”—Zephaniah 3:17

A word, a song, a sound, a smell, a taste, a smile, a breeze, and the list goes on and on! It does not take much to cause the memories and tears to start to flow. At times, I think I am getting better on this journey, and then something happens to reopen the wound in my heart.  At times, the feelings are so strong that it seems as though my chest and whole body is about to explode!

God does not make mistakes!  In my mind and heart, I know this is true, but it is so difficult to accept.   Listening to music has always been a way to deal with the everyday life events that seem to bombard me at times.  In the past, my piano or organ served as my refuge. I am so happy that my children and grandchildren love music, too. Clyde could be heard often singing, “Zippidy Doo Da!”  It always made my heart happy to hear him singing. 

Cason has brought so much joy to my life with his love of music. He keeps me entertained with his performances.   Christian, Logan, and Alden have been such a blessings, also.  Each day, I thank my Heavenly Father for giving me such a wonderful family and friends. I also am thankful for music and its healing powers. 

May God Bless each of you with His Love and His Grace.
