Gratitude in the Face of Setbacks


Yes, we have had a few. But I've been told that starting a business is not for the faint-hearted.


But the setback I had recently was not material, it was mostly, fundamentally spiritual emotional, and somehow, I made it to the Mediterranean Festival, And somehow I limped along wounded each day getting some pertinent task done.


But today I woke up, this morning, after a night of panic attacked paralysis, thankful for the friends God has so graciously allowed in my life, and for my parish, and I realise that all the trials I have encountered have been for me to learn repentance, for this is how we work our salvation.


Last night I did not go to bed until 4:17 am, when my alarm was sounding. Yesterday, I talked to two places of healing where I hope to be able to go very soon, to spend at least three days there. I had a great talk with my Godmother, Irene Dyer, and I am remembering the kind words of Lubov Dupree. KInds words of encouragement not to give up. Same words echoed by other friends of mine. It's messy now, but venturing in new places in one's heart and soul as this start-up forces me to go, is worth it.


May we learn to be thankful for the trials that God sends us, in the hope of the healing that is promised to us. God Bless.
