Acceptance of our ‘new reality’ allows us to move forward, to create openness, and expand our opportunities.

Accepting our flaws requires introspection and humility, but allows us to rebuild anew. Our resistance to change or stubbornness can put up roadblocks and delay the healing process.

Your Unfolding Story
God is using your present circumstances to make you more useful for later roles in his unfolding story.

Grief can become sweet and peaceful, and that is because of time.

People say that “time heals all wounds”. I beg to differ. Time doesn’t heal, if anything it makes it worse. It’s been longer since I have seen Jake, and heard his voice.
