how does one keep calm and carry on
when all you feel like doing is screaming?
in the past three weeks since my father passed away
I have felt every emotion and cried more tears than I thought were possible
I have times were I have felt strong and then weak once more.
Prayer has at times flowed and at times felt impossible
knowing that God knows my heart has been a huge comfort
and the love of my dear family has been such a blessing.
I have started a new art journal for 2012
no great art works in there just doodles and collage and thoughts from my heart
but I thought I would share this collage of some of the pages I have made.
I have really found working on it has helped with all the muddle that seems to clog your brain when you lose someone you love. Somehow working on it has helped me 'Carry on'.
a dear friend of mine wrote out these verses
in a card she gave me and I wanted to share it here for you all....
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NIV
