I just rolled my lazy behind out of bed. hahahahaha 🙂 Lately I have not exactly faced the new day with the same enthusiam I’m used to. I have had to motivate myself a little bit because of some stuff that have gone down, which I alluded to in a recent post. But this morning I am full of enthusiam. I ought to go to mass. God will be pleased with that, I know. I need to pray for the world, for humanity, for my family, my friends, for my enemies, for all divorced or divorcing people around the world, for myself…..I am a little bit ashamed of myself because I totally didn’t realize it was Easter until I went to the gym on Good Friday and it was uncharacteristically closed and I asked why and they told me that it was Good Friday and I thought, “oh. my. heavens. I didn’t realize that.”……..(I consider myself more “spiritual” than “religious” and so I haven’t really been going to church that much. Do you think God is angry with me about that?)
Well, so how can i make this post into a divorce post? Easter/Divorce…..hmmmmm……..well, you know what? I think that when people are going through a divorce, it’s definitely a dark time in their lives. Sometimes they may even feel all alone in their pain and darkness. But I think that even if you don’t go to church and even if you don’t believe in god, I think the idea of Easter is that good will triumph over evil in the end. Light will triumph over darkness. And nothing lasts forever. Your spirit may be downtrodden by the sadness of divorce and all that it means and all that it brings, but eventually, there will be a rising up. You know? You will overcome this period in your life. And there will be joyfulness and celebration. You will have your post-divorce resurrection….
Was that totally lame? Well, look, I just wanted to say happy Easter. I wish you all god’s blessings and his peace.(or her peace – although, I’m pretty sure, that whatever or whoever god is, god ain’t a woman. If god were a woman…) 🙂
