JUST GET OVER IT
Sage words of advice--always uttered for the good of us.
WHY, YES! I will just jump that hurdle and get over it! Never mind that on my BEST day--I am not sure I could have hurdle jumped. Something about my co-ordination or lack thereof might have come into play. And at this stage of the game--I have hips that would scream if I tried to throw my leg over the top of that bar. I certainly will take into consideration your good advice though--to just get over it. Even if it means falling flat on my face--yet again.
It seems instead of being a hurdle jumping specialist, I am rather a face planting genius. Every single time I think---I have done it---I finally am over that hurdle----a toe grazes the bar as I slowly ease over and
my nose is buried two inches in the mire of Why?
Many of you understand of what I speak----the loss of a spouse, friend, parent, sibling, or worst of all-a child. The rug being swept out from under you from a life altering--mind boggling occurrence. Some things in life are impossible to---just get over.
You do not get over loss--you learn to accept it--and continue to trek the path God places before you every day. Most days the sun shines and the path is filled with love and laughter---but then there are days--the clouds creep up and sorrow rains down-yet again. Those rainy days have become a prelude to the assurance of the sunny days to come---for as sure as the rain does fall--so will the sun shine-yet again.
But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.
