"Every moment of light and dark
is a miracle."
What a blessing to find that little gem of a quote for me this week. It has been a very 'dark' feeling type of week. I got sick, which I don't do often and it has made the weeker tougher than it needed to be. But, if I think about this for a moment, I honestly don't get sick like this more than once every five years or so. I am blessed with mostly good health. Yes I deal with some things, yes they are hard, yes, every once in a while I complain about them, but overall, I am healthy and strong. The hardest thing for me this week was to miss out on my daily walks. I miss the companionship of other women who walk with me. I miss talking to them and being with them. I miss the time I spend every morning learning that I am really not alone.
The light in my life is the moments that I spend with friends and family. The memories and the love that I take with me into my day. The dark is the harder times. I have learned that for every single dark moment in life, the Lord gives me light. I receive a blessing that lightens the burden and helps to bear my grief.
And with Alma, I want to cry,
"And I have been supported under trials and troubles of every kind, yea, and in all manner of afflictions; yea, God has delivered me from prison, and from bonds, and from death; yea, and I do put my trust in him, and he will still deliver me". Alma 36:27Yes, yes, a thousand times, yes! The light and dark are both miracles to me!
