Life is like that!
How often have you heard the phrase 'Life is like that?' What does that really mean in any case? Well, here is my brief attempt to put it into words...
...We spent a wonderful day at Greg and Bronwyn's wedding today. It was such a 'love-filled' and peaceful day - a great celebration. After the tragic news of Barry's death on Thursday, today has been a like a ray of hope - a small clearing in the mist.
One reflects that 'Life is like that' sometimes - we have moments of complete pain and despair, followed by gifts of celebration and joy. We don't always get to choose when and how they impact our lives, but we have to embrace all of life.
Jesus enjoyed a wedding at Cana (John 2) and then straight after that he was distraught at the shambles in the temple. His joy turned quickly to anger. A few days later he was interacting with religious people like Nicodemus and then he was healing loads of sick people. Life was like that - for Jesus!
How has 'Life' been treating you lately?
Remember to hold onto the Grace of Jesus.
Clinging to Grace,
