Light


My heart has been heavy with sadness this week. I need it to be light.

I'm sorry for your sadness Julie. I so know how you feel. I have been struggling with some things myself lately, and I'm so appreciative of your sweet comment on my blog. I think sometimes people jump to conclusions and interpret things that we might say and your comment was just perfect. It was like you knew what I needed to hear for comfort without assuming anything. Although I am far from the healing that I need, I want you to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to lift my spirits because my spirit really needs that right now. I hope you find the light you are looking for and I hope your sadness leaves you soon. You are a dear friend to so many that I know you are not alone. You will be in my prayers.

P.S.- This image is absolutely gorgeous.

Sorry you are sad today, Julie. I hope you are able to work through your grief.

This photo is uplifting. May I ask what type of tree or bush this is?

I really like your photo, Julie. I can imagine it as a painting with its greens and yellows and that little spot of red. It is bright,beautiful, and hopeful. I hope you feel happier soon.

Sometimes I have to live the sad days to really appreciate the joy that always seems to follow in better days. May you find light and joy sometime in the days to come...

Hugs and loves.

I don't like it when those times in life settle on us either. Sending a hug...your picture reminds me of when I was a child, I would sit for hours up in a tree, reading. Wish I could do that now..it's a peaceful thing and place. I hope the light washes over you and warms you up soon. :D

Oh no Julie! I am so sorry your heart is heavy. I too have been in a bad place lately. Last night I dug out my Patriarichal blessing and found some "light" and strength. I'll be thinking of you!

Sorry you have a heavy heart. Music helps me, and good,inspiring quotes, but the #1 help is always prayer. Here's hoping the sun will shine on your day to uplift you.

I appreciate your honest heart, and know that there are many of us who can relate to that feeling. I even told my daughter-in-law yesterday, I just feel like crying today. The sunlight does make you feel better -- great symbolism, I watched it rise this morning. Here's to you feeling happy again! Love your photo.
