My heart pounds with happiness
The excitement exceeds the trail
of heartaches and disappointments.
A breath of fresh air, Yes!!!
I’m free to live again!
Maybe a brief  moment
but blissful nonetheless.
Unpredictable as these episodes are,
I'm enticed to control and journal
their existence.
Tomorrow has no surety.
Maybe a river of tears
awaits my acquaintance.
Frail yet hopefull, I whisper a plea
for yet another day
No matter the outcome,
You’re worth the anticipation...........
In the stillness of my thoughts
I’m learning to trust u Lord.

Grateful for each moment. Been battling a rare illness
that was hard to diagnose. I've now received help.
I'm so thankful to God for giving me my life back!

This is so beautifully written A C I really enjoyed reading it. Yes we do have trials in this life, and then there are also wonderful, beautiful blissful days, and you're so right that things we go through teach us to trust the Lord. How are you btw ? Miss everyone, when we sometimes take our breaks.
