A Deep Seated Faith and Abiding Love

Rainbow-flowers-abstract

 

During this time of Thanksgiving, I sit alone and quiet and I think about the things in my life that are topsy-turvy right now.

I have tried to figure out a reason for things that have no reason…

and I realize that it is time to let go of trying to make sense out of things that have no sense

I lean on the only understanding I have and that is how I will navigate these waters that have been turbulent and threatening.

My faith is what allows me to wake each day and face the onslaught of pain and artillery that is pointed directly at my heart.

My faith allows me to stop asking why and wondering how it could be…

And leads me to the understanding that all is exactly as it should be;

that there is great healing taking place;

and that sometimes life is really hard because we have to fulfill a contract that we signed 

This “knowing” that wells up from the center of my soul

creates the most beautiful love

that surrounds me in angel wings

and lifts me higher than the pain

I don’t spend time trying to figure it out now, rather, I spend my time being.  And the deep seated faith strokes the chords of my abiding love and I am ready to face tomorrow.

Blessitude!

Lorrie ❤

I wish you all the peace that comes from knowing that you are exactly where you need to be…experiencing life in ways that stretch you to grow in the most perfect love ❤

A deep seated faith and abiding love is what guides me through the rough patches.

May you find sweet blessings in your rough patches ❤

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Fortunately I had a great Thanksgiving which I spent with my Iranian girlfriend and her husband plus family members. Iranians are very hospitable, kind and considerate. My Iranian girlfriend and I met on the job. Ten years of friendship. Her Mom speaks very little English but we exchange lots of smiles, hugs and laughter. My girlfriend husband is American. I’ve met several of my girlfriends family members and they are all wonderful people. Well educated and highly intelligent with morals and values. No racism. What irks me and boggles my mind is how most Americans who claim to be Christians hate Muslims and African Americans. This in the midst of the Holiday season. I get along much better with my Muslim friends and colleagues than the fake and phony Christians. Fortunately I must work Christmas day. I stopped sharing my feelings about Christmas which has become national greed day. Example Black Friday. People are such hypocrites. That love only lasts a short time then back to the hateful behavior.
    My brother Stephen has been with me since Friday. Yesterday we saw Thor Ragnarok at The Jamaica Multiplex located in Downtown Jamaica Queens. Stephen is real and genuine.

    1. Ah! I am so happy you got to spend the weekend with Stephen…and I am sure that he is so…so happy to be with you!
      I understand what you mean about Christmas…and about people who are racist “Christians,” I know a few…am related to a few also. I try not to be affected by it…and I also try not to judge…that is not for me to do.
      The best we can do is to live by example…to live with love and kindness to ALL!!!
      I am so happy that you had a nice time with your friend’s family on Thanksgiving…that is important. And I will send light and love to you for the rest of this calendar year 😉

      1. Today we went to see the Holiday Train show at Grand Central Terminal and the Holiday Market. We also had a visual feast of the Lord & Taylor Holiday Window Displays. I took lots of photos which are posted on Roaming.

    1. Thanks, Brad. We’ve been traveling quite a while together…through tough times, good times, uncertain times! I appreciate your beautiful soul and the loving kindness you always extend, Brad. While it is not the easiest lesson to learn, it brings such great benefits…that of being able to have faith and always feel love, no matter how hard the events in our lives appear.
      I am grateful to walk this journey with you!

  3. I’m enjoying sharing in your journey, dear Lorrie, with all its up and downs too. We have so much in common and we think alike in this case too. I’ve reached the conclusion that Life is One Great Mystery which we will never fully understand with our little human brain/mind. When I realised this, my mind let go of forever debating and looking for explanations where there are none to be found. Bless you for sharing, dear friend. Love always ❤❤❤

    1. Ah! Isabella…thank you so much for confirming the life events I face…and thank You, also, for the share on Twitter 😁
      Maybe I am ‘growing up’ is the conclusion I come to sometimes 😉
      It is so nice to know that you are not alone in this world…in the thoughts and feelings…and circumstances…we face. Sometimes just knowing someone out there can empathize with you is all it takes to turn a mood around. Thank you for being a beautiful soul and for sharing your kindness 💜
      Sweet blessings on this Sunday!

      1. Thank you, dear Lorrie, for your uplifting message. I think if we all got to know each other we’d find that we share a lot of similarities – kindred spirits and earth pilgrims brought together to help and encourage each other on our journey.❤❤❤

  4. Beautiful post, Lorrie. I think we all struggle for understand on why things are the way happen in our lives. We wonder if what we do or what is done to us matters at all. We can’t see the big picture so we have to have faith and trust that it all matters and we are not meant to understand and just keep moving towards our joy. Hang in there, Lorrie. We are all here for you.

    1. Thanks, JoAnna❤ It has been such a turbulent year…so many life events…and many deep issues uncovered. I wonder sometimes about this process of peeling back the layers. I spent so many years HIDING from the things that lurk in the darkness. I know it is the right thing to do and that once the work is done there is such freedom and healing…but the process hurts…and the ride gets scary sometimes.
      Thank you for your beautiful soul…I appreciate you! Many blessings during this season 💜

  6. Thank you for this thoughtful post Lorrie. 💛 I agree, letting our minds get tangled in the why’s, only keeps us firmly stuck. Finding our center and feeling grateful can give us the space we need to step out of the pain and drama our minds create. May faith and love support you as you work through this time of healing and transformation. xoxo
