Shine The Light

Life has been tough lately.  I've shared very little but friends and family know much, but not all.   Heartbreak, panic, mortification, be expected in these circumstances.  But when the search for "why" and "what to do about it" brought diagnoses for not 2 but 3 guys.........well......a few more adjectives were thrown in for me.   It's been tough.  No quick fix, no miracle medication.  Just a lot of hard work, time and lots and lots of money required to do what is most recommended by the specialists.   


Listening to the new Sugarland album - The Incredible Machine - and the following song, tears just started flowing.  The "hold your breath and try to stop it" type of crying.  Poor hubs had that "Oh dear, she's crying, what now" reaction.   But the words.........just slices straight to my heart.

Click here to the song WITH lyrics......maybe you know someone who needs to hear it. 



  1. Cheri, I'm so sorry things have been so tough for you. You are in my prayers. And I don't say that lightly.

  2. I'm sorry. Sometimes life does seem overwhelming and speaking for myself, I look for ways to escape. I block out the world and avoid everyone. Thank God for the blessing of "time". Time allows things in my life to settle. I pray that each day brings you closer to joy and should you wish to discuss further, feel free to email me. God bless you and you will be in my prayers, as well, Cheri!

  3. Cheri-I have been coping with that "why" question myself lately. One thing I do know is that God has a way of using pain to strengthen us--turning weaknesses into strengths, fear into faith, and sorrow into victory. This is a great song! Have you heard Amy Grant's "Better Than a Hallelujah"? I bet you would like it.

  4. I'm so sorry for whatever challenges you are being faced with. You are definitely in my thoughts & prayers.


Thanks so much for your lovely comments!
