In the last two weeks my younger sister, Rebecca (age 35), passed away and my husband was deployed.
During this time I have had some of the sweetest moments of my life.
God is good to me. Life is beautiful, no matter how ugly people can be to each other.
So often we hear the term "rest in peace" (R.I.P.) in reference to the dead, but it has a greater application. We should be able to rest with a peaceful heart in life as well as in death.
Yes, this has been a tough time for me, but peace has been ever present during this time as well.
I would give more detail if I could articulate it. But the details aren't as important as the take home message noted above.
