Embracing Life’s Transitions // Week 6 — 2 Comments

  1. Beautifully expressed, Barbie. Praying for you!

    As I mentioned in a blog post a while back, I keep gratitude in mind through…shoes. I wear an old and broken-down pair of quasi-dress-shoes for Dog Duty. They’re held together with duct tape, and I feel every rock through the almost-transparent soles (this is New Mexico…lots of rocks).

    But they carry a message, that about half the people in the world don’t HAVE shoes, and that I should be grateful for what I’ve got. Doesn’t matter that I’m dying, and that the tumour may have metastasized. TODAY I have shoes, and TODAY is the occasion of gratitude.

  2. May the Lord bless you with His LIGHT during your dark season, Barbie. The last month has been a bit of a dark time for us as well in some ways. I’ve tried to focus on enjoying family, enjoying the holidays, and now I want very much to focus on gratitude and TRUST. May the Lord be your light, friend!
