The post I’ve been working on the last two days still has whiny vibes, so here’s a flower pic sent yesterday to my sis on her birthday. Celebratory vibes vs. whiny vibes? Celebratory vibes win: Easter is only one week away!
We just got home from a most precious memorial celebration for the father of a dear friend. There were a few tears, yet so much joy and laughter celebrating his life – well loved and well lived. Inspiring. Uplifting.
It reminded me of a devotional reading from Henri Nouwen last week:
“There is a time for mourning and a time for dancing.” (Ecclesiastes 3:4) But mourning and dancing are never fully separated… In fact, their times may become one. Mourning may turn into dancing and dancing into mourning without showing a clear point where one ends and the other starts… Let’s trust that the beauty of our lives becomes visible where mourning and dancing touch each other.” Henri Nouwen, Bread for the Journey
Mourning and dancing touch each other…
Life is a gift!
grace, peace & inspiring lives
