This article impacted me so much.My heart and prayers go out to
Julie and I celebrate with her in overcoming very difficult
'life-trials'. She put into words beautifully, things I have been
experiencing and feeling but been unable to put my finger on until now. This
article was a God send. Thank you for sharing your experience and
pointing out that it is our decision to be happy and thankful, even through
trials, that is crucial...it doesn't mean it's not excruciating... it
is!... But it is a decision that blesses our own lives, and the lives of others
going through their own trials.Thanks for choosing to Not be bitter
when the 'easy card' is taken off the table.
Article quote: “You can’t choose the trials in your life, but you
can choose how you deal with them, you can choose to become better or
bitter.”The older I get, the more I (ever so slowly) see that
this is true.God bless this sister and her family.
Thank you for this article. I will go to the original blog. I really needed
this today. Thank you for your example of faith. I won't forget this. I
will let the "easy" card go.
I'm not sure what article the previous two commenters read, but I've
read the actual blog, and it's a fantastic testament to resiliency, answers
to trials, and finding a purpose in life, again and again.
In time of HIV and broken marriages or unreliable one, it thing being single is
the safest place to be.
How does she deal with the ex-wife? Who stays home with the kids? Does she feel
like she "has it all" now that she has a man in her life? LDS women
sleeping alone, going to the temple alone and facing the trial of staying single
until the next life, with or without kids, is more common than we realize.
