Reading-- Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye, by Victoria Laurie
I'm grateful for-- feeling calmer, more able to deal with changes in my family
Today, I "Blogblast" for Peace.
- I Must Remember
I must remember:
Time can heal grieving.
Families can be together, forever.
To have faith and trust, knowing the Lord
knows what's best for me.
Things will work out all right in the end.
We have advanced technology, such as
cell phones, email and airplanes.
Communication is better now than it was
a hundred years ago, and travel is easier
and faster now.
Things can change at any given time.
I am loved as much as I love, and I am missed
as much as I miss my loved ones.
I must remember the saying by Johann von Goethe:
"God grant me the Serenity to accept the things
I cannot change... Courage to change the things
I can and Wisdom to know the difference."

Sure enough, last night I had a seizure in bed, thankfully a brief and mild one. And, strangely, today I feel calmer, more cheerful, more myself. I feel almost at peace with their moving so far away. I still don't like the fact they had to move clear across the United States, but at least I can accept and deal with it calmly and somewhat peacefully now--which I'm so thankful for!
Heavenly Father, thank thee for granting me the peace and solace I so needed! I didn't think I would feel this way for many days yet.
