The intensity of emotion shook me... and, through the tears, I posted the following:
"For those of you who write... or blog... are there things you've written that bring tears to your eyes? What joy to feel so deeply."Within moments one of my followers responded with:
"The blog I wrote last night brought tears to my eyes, but it wasn't joy."My immediate response:
"I'll say this before i read your post... the fact that we can FEEL deeply... isn't that, in a way, JOY?"

"The young women will dance for joy, and the men—old and young—will join in the celebration. I will turn their mourning into joy.
I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing."
There's so much pain in the story of the untimely death of Trayvon Martin. There are so many unanswered questions.
How do we deal with it?
We feel!Please read the blog which was shared with me by Beyond Normal Limits - Raising Boys In A Dangerous World She felt the pain & she responded.
Thank you for feeling -- both the good & the bad.
Let me continue to look for Your promises with expectation.
Awake my feelings.
