When there is not joy in my heart, I know it is temporary. But you will never hear me tell you any lies about how happy I am when I am not.
So, here is the truth:
My world view just got shook up.
I know I will be OK.
This is not how I wanted it or planned it.
I know there are no guarantees in life, and I am keenly aware of that right now.
I do not have to go mental.
But I can be sad.
I know that God is "large and in charge" and I trust Him.
I will continue to look for opportunities to be of service to God and my fellows.
And some day soon I will be singing again.
Just not today.
