Joy and Sorrow. ..
When we lose our jobs, or our homes; when we learn that we are ill and can not be cured; or when we say our final goodbyes to Loved Ones-- we discover what it feels like to be broken.
Sorrow is forever knocking at our door.
How do we pick up the pieces of our broken lives? We must try always to offer Compassion and Mercy to Ourselves and Those Around Us.
And We Learn to Open the Door to Love.
With Love will come dear, old friends Compassion and Mercy. They are like Sunshine to the Clouds of Sorrow.
And then, there are the Tender moments and times of Forgiveness and Healing that bring the Rainbows of JOY. Rarely in life does one travel without the other.
Today Breathe and Exhale Deeply at least 10 Times.
Please Re-Member that even when Sorrow comes...
JOY is ever-present to see us through the difficult times; and hold us tenderly with Love!
Peace Is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Deep Listening, Faith, Forgiveness, Good Purpose, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Patience, Respect, Understanding and the Gift of Love!
