Caught Between — 10 Comments

  1. Wow, Janis! So much joy and so much sorrow. May God give you His enormous peace and strength through this time, and may He bless you and your family during this Christmas season. Thank you for ministering to me and so many others.


  2. Janis – It sounds like the wedding was beautiful. I’m glad that you had those moments of joy.

    This last sentiment of yours rings in my heart:
    “Caught between emotions, floating in space, has proved to be a place where the Lord can demonstrate His provision and providence to us.”

    What a wonderful way to put it. So simply lovely. God is there – always – before and after us – and in the middle when we’re caught in between emotions.

    Perfect Scripture, too. Those are some of my favorite verses. Thanks for sharing. Take all the time you need – know that I will miss you, and will eagerly look forward to your return!

    GOD BLESS, Janis – and xoxo to you!

  3. Thank you, all, for your heartfelt expressions and your prayers. I will be in touch with you when I return.

    Each of you blesses my life with your friendship and your reflection of God’s love and wisdom.

    From My Heart to Yours,

  4. I am so very sorry for your loss, Janis. That is a hard place — rejoicing for love, grieving for loss. I am familiar with it these days, too.

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss and rejoice with you in your joy. I understand the inbetween. We live there, don’t we? In between the first and second coming of Christ, which is what we celebrate this season.

    Blessings to you and yours.

  6. Hi Janis,

    I’m sorry I missed this post, but I did want to say that I’m praying for you and your family. I understand what you mean by, “Wandering between joy and unexpected sorrow.

    Blessings and peace.
