Hope and Joy

….perhaps I need to make a sign that says Pain and Suffering.

Beauty and pride….Plain and humble

….perhaps I need to learn the lessen of … KNOW IDEA.

Progress in Africa is slow but really encouraging because they are doing the work and I am not. They have the tools to clean wounds and a car to travel to the village. Maybe that is what God wants right now while Sarah heals from cancer. It just seems too darn ironic that I would get cancer when that was what started this non-profit.

Patience and pain go hand and hand. This is a blog and a business but I have to share last night I was in incredible pain all night and found no comfort until I took a few more pills. Yet we are told to pray to God for peace and relief. Where was he last night? Watching and letting me experience suffering because that is just what I have to do right now.

Right now my new husband of 5 weeks must sit back and helplessly watch me cry in pain with no power at all to fix it. What an intense stress to put on a new marriage but we are relying on God in the middle of it. He is the only one that can see past all this Pain to where the healing lies.

Healing Eyes….Letting go of the pain and seeing past it in order to allow the Healing to begin or in my case continue. So I have to put my words where my mouth is, or do as I say and not say as I do? Seeing past beauty of what I was to the beauty that is ahead and the future of the mission in Africa where when I go back I can connect more with those in physical pain. I have known the emotional side but now I will have learned another lessen of pain….both are awful and I feel such sympathy for anyone going through cancer and grief.

Let go….and find yourself.

See past the pain…is my Hope and Joy

A sweet girl named Karen

karenKaren was a girl with over the top excitement. Each day I would hear her scream out my name with a little trill in her voice. Sarah!!!!!! There was one day where she pulled me aside and got very quiet, it was the day after I wrote her a little letter to encourage her. She told me the letter brought her joy and it seemed she wanted to open up about something but couldn’t.
We sat alone for awhile and giggled softly about silly things.

She said in a letter to me that her mother wasn’t very nice to her and it’s hard on her. I told karen she should still love her mother even if she is mean to her because perhaps she is just upset at life in general and not at her daughter.
I don’t know what life is really like for her at home but I do know she was the sweetest girl I met.
A bit bossy but aren’t all sweet girls a bit demanding ha

What if Pain brought Joy?

What’s the secret to healing from a loss so great everything else seems impossible?

What’s the secret when a memory sparks a tear?

What’s the secret to abundance?

Giving up and Believing even when others cannot..even when the pain continues…even if the pain brings joy. If you knew following the pain would lead to joy would you do it? Or would it seem illogical to go down a path of pain in order to find joy?

Some of you know pieces of my story … fragments of a past long gone. Yet that past keeps coming back and when it does the full force of that gut wrenching pain resurfaces, it stabs at my heart, it chokes off air, and brings dreams at night that I thought long gone. Perhaps it’s true that a pain so great can never be completely healed but it can be softened. Someone shared a story with me about how losing someone can leave a gaping hole in your heart and it has sharp edges all around it. Over time those edges will soften but that hole will aways remain…..Always be there as a reminder…Always incomplete and yet can turn into something beautiful. A hole that reminds of what WAS and what IS…a hole that can be as deep as the darkest pit but if we learn to control its power it can be a slight bump in the road. That’s the secret of loss…managing the hole left behind. No on else can do it for you and No one else can see the hole.

But those that Believe in faith and a God that forgives and loves even though we are made to see such horrendous things have hope for something more.

Hope that life can be beautiful amidst so much suffering.

In my mind I keep thinking…it only takes 12. It only takes the smalls to create the bigs.

Perhaps Healing Eyes is small but that could be it’s secret to success..

Ask!
Believe It!
Feel It!
