I stumbled across this verse in a list of things Paul strove to be and it rang so true to my current experience. It’s hard to explain my life now, but these words capture it perfectly. Sorrow does not conflict with rejoicing, and rejoicing does not end sorrow.
Life is beautiful. My job is life giving. My husband is celebrating in heaven. My daughter is delightful . My sister is an amazing and generous friend. My friends are precious. My home is at peace.
