Lately, I've been feeling so overwhelmingly blessed. And even though I have gone through several excruciatingly painful life-events recently, God has really showed Himself so faithful in answering some prayers. I've found that even though sometimes I might not want to get out of bed because I miss Karina so much or I miss my older brother, it is really important to see the lessons, growth, and also the positive throughout the entire grieving process.
With the first seven months without my best friend, I have had several moments when her presence was beyond palpable. I'm not going to share too much into detail, but on Saturday night I had another intense experience by myself. But… I totally was not by myself. It hadn't happened in several months, so it wasn't expected at all.
But I believe this as much as I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior: there are times when we are not alone. (Excluding God being with us constantly.)
