Today I had an opportunity to listen to someone’s personal struggles. She dealt with giving a child up for adoption and later found out her second child was deaf and her third child with cerebral palsy.

Ecclesiastes 12:4 and the doors on the street are shut—when the sound of the grinding is low, and one rises up at the sound of a bird, and all the daughters of song are brought low 5 they are afraid also of what is high, and terrors are in the way; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags itself along, and desire fails, because man is going to his eternal home, and the mourners go about the streets
This verse show us how to live life in the current, go with the flow of life. Find joy in life in whatever situation you are facing. The rough one, the ones that you have to fight to get out of bed on. Those are the ones that you are going to remember. God is working through you through this time and I promise you will see the blessing later.
