Morning Motivation; Sorrow Into Dancing

I read a book several years ago called “Small Island” by Andrea Levy.”  There is a quote that I came across in my reading that really touched me……

“He looked so pained that I dreamed of taking his hands and making him dance.”

This statement was directed to someone that was not particularly nice; he was a harsh self-centered person.  But her compassion for his pain made her want to help him, to make him dance.  Wow, to me that is pretty powerful.  An example of God’s love in a way.

“By you my sorrow is turned into dancing, 

you have taken away my clothing of grief and given me robes of joy” 

Psalm 30:11


Thank You God!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
