No Laughing Matter

No Laughing Matter

On resurrection Sunday, I find it fitting to remember where I came from. Four years ago today I had brain surgery. The span of time that has past seems like forever. I have come so far in the past four years, physically, emotionally and spiritually, and still everyday I am pushing for more. I still face struggles that my body has a hard time facing. It can be difficult sometimes to choose to have joy, but as I look back I am filled with joy.

Each year that passes, I watch my beautiful children grow and I am reminded that I truly shouldn’t be here. I am reminded even in my weaknesses how strong I have become. As our life has changed because of limitations I face, I am reminded that it has not been all bad… we have learned that in stillness God abounds. We have learned that in struggle, God is faithful and more than real. We have learned that family is about building one another up and bearing each other’s burdens. We have learned a lot. We have learned to live!

I encourage you to face your today with joy in your heart and resurrection on your mind. Our good and faithful Father sent his son so that we could have life and have it MORE abundantly! GO LIVE!!!!
