Look What God Can Do

Category: Musings by Sharon

Dear Friends.

It’s an exciting day with the solar eclipse happening and all. The energy is hopping.

Yesterday I went to visit my grandson. As my Son and his Amazing Wife live out of town I don’t get to see my Grandson as much as I would like. I saw him when he was just born and again yesterday¬†he is almost two months and so big and totally adorable. A total blissful little old¬†soul.

I was nervous he wouldn’t like me or scream when he went into my arms but that wasn’t the case he snuggled right in and fell asleep. I must say “Grandma rocked it”!

Seeing my Son and his beautiful Wife handling parenthood was a delight.¬†My young Son being the proud Uncle sent me over the moon with pride. My sister being there¬†with us all as¬†one of my ¬†Grandson’s Great Aunts (and great she is). One of his Grandfathers meeting¬†him for the first time. ¬†It just doesn’t get any better than that.

As you know I have had a year of a “crap” storm and I was extremely ill and almost passed to the other side more than once. It was scary and I was wondering if the pendulum of life would ever come back. I always said to my clients that its all ok as far as the pendulum goes one way it will come back the other way. I was starting to wonder if this were true at all but kept my faith in God’s pendulum.

A couple of months ago I started to feel those little moments of poking my head above water and I realized, for now, I’m out of the woods. The birth of my Grandson really gave me my faith that everything will be ok and I thought wow “look what God can do”. It helped me to start feeling like the old me again.

I’ve changed considerably and I will never get caught up in that chaos ever again and it feels so good. I’m even letting my hair go gray because why not.

When I was holding this little guy in my arms and remembering when I held his father so many years ago in my arms just like that my heart melted and I realized I am so blessed.

 

When thinking of the last year I think of what my wise younger Son always says to me “everything happens for a reason” and “God gives his toughest ¬†battles to his strongest soldiers”.

I do love God’s pendulum even if its uncomfortable when in motion. As bad as it gets is how good it is going to get.

Until we meet again, Sharon
