As many of you know me it has been a hard last 8 1/2 years for my family and I. There are a LOT of things that I could be very angry about, but I chose to look at it from the Lord’s perspective.
I also see in this world a lot of Anger!!! I mean a LOT of it. More than I believe I have ever seen. So, I’m writing this blog hoping that I can change someone’s mind set. I pray that you can go from thinking Angrily to thinking of how Blessed you are.
I will use my life as an example.
These are just a few of the things I COULD be angry about.
Angry that God took Kelsey to Heaven!
Angry that I don’t have my “Perfect” world anymore!
Angry that God took Annie to Heaven!
Angry that God took Mamma to Heaven!
Angry that God to Rick to Heaven!
Angry that God took two of my young cousins to Heaven!
Angry that God took my best friend of 40 years son to Heaven!
Angry that I don’t have my family talking and loving me like we used to!
Angry that I feel so alone!
BUT!!! here is how I chose to think.
I am blessed to have had Kelsey in my life!
I am blessed that I still have my Ronnie and Courtney!
I am blessed that we had Annie for as long as we did!
I am blessed to have had such a loving mamma and have beautiful and funny memories of her!
I am blessed to have had Rick in my life for the past 30 years and that I was able to tell him I loved him before he passed!
I am blessed to have great memories with my cousins!
I am blessed to have know my friends son!
I am blessed to have hope and faith that me my loved ones will some day be like we were!
I am blessed that I am still here on this earth to watch my Courtney get married and have a family of her own someday!
The list can go on and on and on.
A lot of people have asked me over the years, “How can you not be angry at God?” I simply say, “I wasn’t supposed to have children, the Lord blessed me with two. I would take those 17 years with Kelsey over not having her in my life at all. So I am BLESSED!”
I believe there would be less anger in this world if people could just think about how blessed they are. Blessed that they are still here. Blessed that they have a roof over their head. Blessed that they have a job. Blessed that they have children they can watch grow up. Blessed they have family and friends. But most of all, Blessed that they have a Father in Heaven that LVOES them. He watches over us and takes care of us. We may not know His plan, but He is a LOVING God. I am Blessed and you all are also Blessed. Just think of your blessings and not anger.
I pray that each and every one of you ask the Lord to come into your heart. That you have the relationship with Him that I have. And that we all meet in Heaven one day.
