Kris, in New England

This brought tears to my eyes. For it reminded me of a time, very recently, when I was inconsolable about some family problems; big problems that are insurmountable. I wept for most of a day at what was lost and in my grief, finally turned to God (which I should have done in the first place). I asked God to please take the burden of the pain away, that I couldn't survive it yet again. My entire body was wracked with sobs and literal physical pain to go with the emotional pain. The heart does break and it takes your body with it.
Anyway, as I prayed fervently I felt a hush come over the room; then I fell asleep. Very deeply in the middle of the day (which I never do).
When I woke up I had a headache to end all headaches and my body felt like it had been beaten and run over, repeatedly. I went thru the motions the rest of the day and went to bed early, sleeping like the dead all night long.
When I woke up in the morning - no pain. No headache, no physical pain and the heartbreak was gone. The lesson remains and I haven't lost the memory of what happened. But the pain of the loss was just - gone. In its place was the most intense feeling of peace I've ever had; and it's never really gone away.
It freed me - God freed me - so that I could forgive those who trespassed against me, so that I could move on with my life.
In gratitude to God, every minute of the day.
