This really touched me today.

It's about the daughter of a friend of a friend of mine, and I wonder--how often does that happen with us and our Heavenly Father? How often are we in the middle of a trial, and He's trying to help us, with all the resources available to Him, and He KNOWS He CAN help us, and we struggle and cry, "I can't breathe!" as we gasp, frantically for air? And then, eventually, finally, desperately, we listen, and we hear, and we breathe His healing, and we are OK, as He knew we would be.

Maybe the lesson is:

Struggle less; listen, hear, and BREATHE more.

Thanks for your thoughts! I just gave a talk on adversity and this is right along with what I've been thinking about for the past several days. I put what you wrote on my blog... I hope that's okay! :)

Margaret, I came to check out your blog because I've been out-of-it for sooooo long... and seeing this post just made me SMILE so big my cheeks ache. I was just on John and Nicole's blog (because I haven't read anyone's blog in, literally, months), then to see them referenced on your blog - awesome. I am so blessed to be friends with them AND with YOU! I seriously miss you tons, and simply cannot wait to see you again. Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS: That line "struggle less..." REALLY resonated with me. Thanks for saying that; I seriously needed it.
