"UP," THE MOVIE, AND ALSO A PLACE TO LOOK FOR COMFORT

These little people took me
to the movie "UP" last week. They were delightful.

The movie was delightful, too.
It was funny and a bit sad too.
It had high adventure.
And the cone of shame.
The movie was about friendship and
loyalty but it was about loss, too.

Today was a day of loss for us. A sad day. A day for contemplation and faith in Heavenly Father and believing him when he makes promises.

If you are having a sad day/month/year/life, remember that God loves you and is watching over you. He is sad at your sadness but He knows that everything will be all right, even when it's not. I find it hard to believe some days, like today, but deep in my heart I know it is true.

God loves you. He loves me and my family. He wants us all to be happy. Even when we are sad. Like today.

So beautiful and full of hope, I'm sorry for your sadness, no matter how temporarily it may be. I feel I should know why the world is bleak for you today, but the reasons don't matter...only that it will go away... Hugs to you and yours x

Thank you for those inspiring words.

Often we go through our day, and take our blessings for granted. God is always there for us.....in joy and in sadness...

Hope all will be well for you!

I am so sorry for your loss. I know sadness well and I hate to hear that a good friend is experiencing it today.

Your words strengthen and inspire me. I'm so sorry for your sadness and know that you will be comforted. I'm bringing those cupcakes to you tomorrow (still frozen), then you can pull one out when you need that kind of comfort.

Lynne, I hope you are feeling peace. Thank you for your words. I hope it helps you to know they lifted me up.

I like to remember that there is opposition on all things. Our joyous days would not be so joyous without the sadness.
