Dear Universe, you are a mystery. Glorious and captivating, you are much greater that life itself. As I try to embrace the unpredictable shifts in Life, days that exude such beauty or such disasters, even loss… I look up and say, You are greater than I. Let Your purpose prevail.
As quick as the wind morphs into flames, a whole life we thought we built can literally burn to ashes, in an instant. Loss comes in many forms. The deepest fear in my own life: something that once was and no longer exists. As I’ve learned to endure the loss of my own hand, lost the most horrific lawsuit 7 years later, broken relationships, to assets, Lord knows I’ve done my best to build myself up again and stay unattached (a practice I try to lead my life by) But how does one stay open to everything but attached to nothing esp in the midst of a loss??? Ironically, I struggled with a vanished relationship this month ha! I came home to #Perspective My Aunt and Uncle’s home they built over 40 years in burnt to ashes, lost everything today 🙏🏼. There is always something greater than “I” We cannot minimize the pain sudden loss inflicts, but try to accept the strength and purpose we gain in the process. Some things are beyond our control for there are NO absolutes but this moment and change. I’m elated by the response and support of this travesty for my Family, my hometown #VenturaCounty going up in flames and the place I call home, #LA I pray not to take even a breath for granted. Sometimes we must look up, spread our broken wings, and give Him praise in the midst because we are Alive. “God works all things good according to His purpose.” ~ Aunt Jackie’s 1st response after losing her and Uncle Charlie’s home. Thank the Lord for our #Faith 🙏🏼🔥🙏🏼 #thomasfire #prayforventura #prayforLA #One xx
