FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: THE WAY FORWARD IS WITH A BROKEN HEART

The Way Forward is with a Broken Heart so says Alice Walker. I love this quote and title of her book. Because no matter what happens, life goes on. I believe you can move forward with a broken heart. I am. I can't sit and wait until I get over my broken heart. I got life to tend to, I got mountains to climb and good times to be had. And I plan to do them with a broken heart, moving forward. A broken heart can't be the excuse to not do your best, be your best, look your best. A broken heart cannot be an excuse to withdraw from the world and isolate yourself from family and friends. The way forward is with a broken heart. I have decided early on to choose happiness at every turn. I believe in this so much that regardless of a broken heart there is still joy all around me. I live in love, even though my heart is broken. The last couple of days were tough, but they were also happy and joyous. Yes, I got my letter for my surrender date and yes, my husband has moved on without us, but at the same time, my kids started school --a new school and they were very happy about it. Their first day was great! My nephew--my sister Lo's son started his very first day of kindergarten in New Jersey--that was joyous. It is these small moments of joy and love that carry me. Yes, the way forward is with a broken heart...indeed.

Sister Lisa,

It is so easy to allow the troubled waters to sweepa you away with the current. I simply choose to hold on. Here is my prayer: All shall be well, and all shall be well, all shall be well. I say this in the midst of whatever my struggle of the moment is and it helps. Keep the faith.
