God Throws a Bone

I'm pretty sure you don't come to this blog for any type of spiritual enlightenment. Don't worry, you won't get any of that here today.

But I do have to share this. It probably won't even make sense.

Have you ever struggled and struggled with something that causes you so much pain for a long time? The pain doesn't seem to go away, but maybe even gets worse? That lump constantly in your throat or the pit at the bottom of your stomach?

Then all of a sudden, God throws you a bone.

And everything is clear.
Just let it go.
Can it really be that easy?

It is that easy.
And you feel lighter.
Thank you God.

Told you it wouldn't make sense. But it does to me today.

I had that with my ex-fiance. It wasn't until I saw him tossing wings at a Hooters that I finally felt relief that my life was better without. God has his funny remedies to the common ails. This one just happened to come with a side of teriyaki.

Glad the proverbial anvil is off your chest.

I'm still waiting for the bone.

Danielle said...

Can you ask him to toss me one too?

Laura N said...

What a blessing. And you are too cute in your PR pics!

Lucas said...

I know what you mean P.O.M. It can really be that easy, the hard part is waiting for it to happen. Glad you are feeling lighter!

Glam said...

It makes complete sense, especially to those of us who've had similar experiences. Glad things seem to be peaceful for you at the moment!

And your bikini pics are pure inspiration! You look amazing.

Sending more good vibes your way!

I'm glad you got your bone. Enjoy it!

Haley said...

That's awesome! Sometimes the storm just breaks, and the peace hits you. Relish the moment!

I'm glad you got the bone. Could you tell him I need a club-sized one? I mean really big. Thanks.

J~Mom said...

I do know just what you mean. nice!

Crystal said...

You said it...Let it go. Short, sweet and directly to the point. Hope it works.

ThickChick said...

Congrats gorgeous!

Sounds like the song of the day should be 'Lately' by The Helio Sequence (a lush, gorgeous song about getting over it... perhaps your May anthem?)

I'm with Glam. Um. Could you look any hotter in a 2-piece? (rhetorical question)

Heather said...

Yup. I know exactly what you mean. I'm so glad you've found some relief. :)

doctorval said...

And that moment of clarity cannot be bought or paid for. Glad you're there.

teacherwoman said...

I get it. :)

death by chocolate said...

Glad you got your "aha!" moment. I feel as though I'm due for one sooner than later... here's hoping it comes!

Grumpy Chair said...

There is nothing better than being able to take a deep breath with no tightness around the chest!

Glad you got tossed a bone.

Kiki said...

Totally makes sense...glad you got some relief!!! You deserve it!!!

SLB said...

That works, welcome back :-)

Angry Runner said...

Vague...insightful but vague. Will we be getting details?

Brianna said...

I think he waits to toss it when we stop looking for it. We appreciate it more then, I think.

Enjoy! :)

carla said...

Cara said...

This actually makes a lot of sense. I am glad you got your bone ;-)

Mendy said...

I know exactly what you mean. It's kinda like in the movie "You've got mail" where Tom Hanks girlfriend is mean to someone, and suddenly the light comes on and he's like "you're outta here". And boom - it's over.

Yeah, I understand.

Amanda said...

This is sort of how I feel about the whole wedding fiasco and attempting to plan a second redo wedding... some days I get a bone and I can handle it all better.

God recently tossed me a bone, too. It was like He said, "You know what? You've been working too hard to put up with this. And you've even been going to church, for crying out loud!"
