A meaningful quote...

I read this quote and found it to be so comforting this morning. I wanted to share it on my blog.

"We all face relational loss, but relationships rooted in Christ don’t ever really get lost. They are eternal. No matter where we go, no matter how far apart life takes us from those relationships, there is always continuity, whether physical or spiritual, and therefore no permanent loss. The converse is also true. Relationships forged apart from Christ will inevitably end, either in this life or the next."
-Lydia Brownback

I believe God allowed me to read this today because it is so pertinent to where I am today in my spiritual journey. I have found more peace as God has taught me how to REST in His sovereignty and love.

Shari, That is an awesome quote and it also has brought me comfort as I'm dealing with a difficult relationship with my brothers. For me, I've been ignoring some things to avoid confortation but I ended up putting myself in a difficult situation. Thanks for the posting this.

Janet, thanks for sharing that with me. I'm glad it was meaningful for you, as well! I will tell you this; situations that would have put me in the (emotional) weeds for days or even weeks in the past don't control me anymore. I feel the pain and then I put it in God's hands and let Him carry me through. I am amazed at how much He has helped me. I have learned that dwelling on it, talking about it and feeling anguish over it accomplish nothing. Sometimes it just is what it is and you have to accept and move forward. I felt like I had done that, but reading this quote was like a soothing balm. So I HAD to share!

I found this quote very meaningful today.I know their relationship was permanent. Whenever,I think of the Kuhle's,I always think of them holding hands. They were a very "Special Couple."

Betty, thanks for commenting. We can be thankful that whatever is in Christ will stand for all eternity. I'm glad you have been blessed with such special friends. And I'm glad this quote brought comfort. I just love it. I have read it again and again today.
