Blog Turned 5 Months Old Yesterday:
Coming from 90+ Countries
All these are the stats as I write this, one day past the blog anniversary. It is amazing how this ministry continues to grow and how it clearly has touched many lives already even though it is still in its infancy. Thanks for all your the support. To God be the glory! (“Great things He has done….” as the song goes.)
Today is another anniversary for me as well.
It is a sad anniversary that sort of ambushed me this afternoon. I find myself close to tears today and while I was writing out today’s date it occurred to me: Today is the second anniversary of my divorce becoming final. Now, it makes a little more sense why I’ve been so easily moved to tears this day. (And it probably doesn’t help that it is overcast in weather here in Minnesota.) I do believe my spirit recognized the date even if my mind didn’t until this late afternoon.
Funny how the heart retains things.
And it is okay to feel sad.
Yes, even years after the death of a loved one or a marriage one once valued.
I hope you, too, allow yourself a sad day or two.
And I hope that you, too, allow yourself to notice the loss respecting the laws of your heart.
That said, today is also a glad day even with that sadness in that I see the fruit coming out of my first marriage’s ashes in this blog ministry.
And I am thrilled to see how God created a way for new life and an amazing new beginning with Mrs. DM and munchkin (tomorrow marks the anniversary of our engagement!)
My blessings are truly overflowing.
So, I guess today is a poignant day for me.
A mix of contrasting emotions.
Neither bad nor good.
Just Sad And Glad.
