“The world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place.” Casting Crowns
Did I have any inkling of this 15 years ago at the end of a 20 year marriage? If I did, the inkling was overwhelmed by the grief. But now it all makes perfect sense. Sometimes it’s hard to trust the timing, but God is listening, working with us, and has wonderful surprises in store for us.
“You are being held so strongly and so deeply, that you can stop holding on to, or defending, yourself. God forever sees and loves Christ in you; it is only we who doubt our divine identity as children of God.”

I’m so happy to have been part of lifting your spirit. It tells me God is working through me and I’m on the right path. So thank you for this confirmation! It means a lot.

I’ve been there too, with a 20 year marriage. The Resurrection does follow! Thank you for this beautiful post. 🙂
