Through Despair And Hope Through Faith And Love

The title of this post was taken from the song Circle of Life from The Lion King Movie.



I took the kids to see The Lion King in 3D this weekend. It's one of my all time favorite movies, and this has always been my favorite part of the movie. I will admit I cried. This time I think it hit me in a more spiritual way, and it left me wondering about my own faith in who I am. I don't blame God for taking Mike away from us. I do occasionally yell and scream, and maybe for short periods of time I ask why he had to take him from us, but for the most part that isn't a question I ask. Why blame God, I mean he's God. I do however blame myself sometimes with all the what if questions. I'm human so I guess I believe that it could be my fault even though logically I know it's not. Anyway, I love this part of the movie.

Hopefully this isn't a weird thing to say, but I came across a scripture last night that made me think of you so I thought I would share it: "I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." Anyway, you can delete this if it's weird. Take care.

I still remember mom coming home one day in the old honda and we greeted her at the car and she had this movie (on VHS... lol)behind her back. She told us she had a surprise for us and we were so excited when she gave us this movie, because it was rare for her to buy us movies. We could hardly wait to run inside to watch it together. We watched this movie over and over and over again through the years.... I haven't watched this movie in several years, but watching this clip brought back those happy memories of us together joined also with the sadness in how losing Mike has saddened our lives. Interesting how touching this movie is in a different way now.... "Follow Rafiki! he knows the way"! I love you!
