But I Will Also Dance.

To everything there is a season,

A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

This year I will weep, but I will also laugh.
I will ache, but I know I am healed and I am being healed.
I will grieve, but I will also dance.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,

And lean not on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5

This is a tough day for me and may always be the hardest day to walk through each year.

This year is different though for I am choosing to let go of my understanding and choosing trust and follow you despite everything.

This weekend while at IHOP a sung was sung at church and really spoke to me.
Some of it is out of a passage in Isaiah that I l o v e.
“You Pour Out Mercy”
Luke Wood

You have known our souls in adversity

When we strive against You

You extend Your hand time and time again

From the heights of glory to the depths of my heart

For You have bound Yourself to man

Despite his unfaithfulness

You pour out mercy

You open Your heart

You pour out mercy to

Reveal Your heart

All man’s empty promises

Lie broken at Your feet

But You have never broken one

You open up Your heart Time and time again

You give beauty for ashes, Garments of praise

You give infinite mercy To those who fear Your name

Thank you my Saviour, my Redeemer, my Healer for always walking beside us through the thick and the thin, through times of sorrow and times of joy. Through the good and the awful.

To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
Isaiah 61:3
