Personal update.

Do you remember the song by the Byrds, Turn, Turn Turn? There is a time for everything and a season for everything under heaven.

A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance
 ( Ecc3:4)

A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain.
( Ecc3:5)

A time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away.

A time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak...(Ecc3:7) 

We all go through personal struggles at one time or another. As family and friends we hold each other up through the trials in our lives. That is what life is all about. To be there for one another and to serve each other with love.

 Danni is going through a divorce and as some of you know, it is so emotional and draining.

There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven.  My dear friend, I am always here for you.

  1. My heart goes out to Danni, and thankfully she has such a support in you. Beautiful images and beautiful words. X Sharon

  2. Good luck and best wishes for a return to happiness.

  3. A lovely and touching post, Julie. Danni, you're in my thoughts and prayers. You're a strong and beautiful person, and I know that you'll make it through this difficult time with the help of your friends and family.
    Love to both of you,
    Wendi xo

  4. I love the images you have used to go with this wonderful song and bible verses. So poignant. Divorce is very hard. But it will be over and happiness can come again

  5. My heart goes out to Danni and you're a wonderful friend Julie to have done this post for her and to be there for her. Life hands us twists and turns but somehow we always get through.

    Big Hugs to you Both!

  6. I am sorry to hear it. I hope she knows she has lots of support out here in blogland and she is lucky to have you, Julie as her friend. The lyrics of that song are so poignant. I would imagine divorce is traumatic even when its a good idea. Just that sudden shift in your life has to be jolting. I do believe God doesnt give us anything we cannot handle. Best of luck to Danni and hope that each day things might get a little easier and hope there is laughter and smiles coming her way very soon.

  7. Oh Julie, I am so sorry to hear this news. And so glad that Danni has you as a confidant and dear friend. I guess we all have friends who have gone through this, or have gone through it ourselves, and it looks so hard. I am thinking of her, and you, because as her friend I'm sure it is sad and hard for you, too. God bless,

  8. What a sweet post of true freindship. You are lucky to have each other. I hope she finds strength and hope in some of the good things in life. My heart goes out to her.

  9. Beautifully said. I feel for her. I too am going through a divorce and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It's the worst thing in the world. I'm here if she needs to vent - I get it!! xo

  10. I am so sorry to learn this. I have been through a divorce and it is a tumultuous and heartbreaking time. So much hopelessness. You just have to hang in there, because with time things get much better.
    I will keep Danni in my prayers.

  11. I am sorry to hear this, My heart goes out to Danni. Somtimes life is just too tough to handle. You have written such beautiful words and given such hope in the scriptures. You are the perfect person to walk along side Danni at this time. I am sending a great big cyber HUG to Danni and to YOU too, xo Kathysue

  12. Julie,

    Gosh.. I have tears in my eyes.

    This is so beautifully written. Danni is fortunate to have your unconditional friendship and support to help see her through this stressful ordeal. It must be terribly draining for you as well. Life is full of side curves that seem to hit us like a brick. Resilience is so important ~ looking forward and living in the moment.

    Take care,


  13. Dear Julie and Danni - I'm fairly new to your blog, but I do want to send Danni my very best. All of us are here for you. Take care, Loi

  14. You expressed a beautiful, heartfelt sentiment, Julie and I hope it will give Danni comfort. My grandmother used to say that this too shall pass. Here is to passages.

  15. I am soooo sorry, Danni. It's a very hard road to travel. Thankfully you have Julie as well as others that are dear to you, I am sure. My prayers are with you. This was a beautiful, heart felt post. My love to you guys. Mona

  16. Sounds like your a wonderful support for her at this time. I have been on that road before after a very
    long marriage ( 25 years ) and Four beautiful daughters... But, God is good. All the Time.
    We will keep her in our prayers.. and remind her, as my Father says " This too shall pass" Can we just
    say a huge AMEN to that.
    It will get better, I promise !


  17. As a blog land friend, I wish her the best. She is lucky to have you as such a dear friend.

  18. Life is sometimes so difficult and hard and we need our beatiful friends. I wish Danni very best.

  19. Yes, sometimes we forget that behind all of this blogging prettiness that life is often messy and difficult...... so happy that she has such great support in you and many others.

  20. you threw a lovely life net to danni and invited us to do the same. she is going down a rough road.
    tell her, if appropriate taylor, a saying i remind myself of many times; "to get to the other side of the room, you have to walk through it"
    sending hugs

  21. Julie - My heart and prayers go out to Danni - she is very luck to have the wonderful support from you! There will be a light at the end of that tunnel... and it would be a beautiful garden on the other side.
    I wnated to let both of you know that I have awarded you the Liebster Award! Click over and accept! Congrats!
    You know I love your blog! Have a great day -

  22. There is nothing like the love and support of good friends during such a time, and I know your friendship means so much...my best to Danni and as a blog friend, my thoughts are with her too...

  23. Oh man! Sometimes you get caught off guard, and the tears come when you least expect it - while blogging!
    So sorry to hear of Danni's struggles.. Lord knows there are plenty of people who suffer through this same drama and are better off after, it's just hard to imagine while you're going through it. Bless your heart for being so dear to her during this time.. it will be what gets her through it!
    Hang in there Danni!

  24. Life can be so hard. What a beautiful post. It's girlfriends who get us through everything. Clearly, you're the friend she needs. I wish for easier times for Danni and for you.

  25. Sending lots of hugs to both of you. It must be a very difficult time but you are lucky to have the friendship to lean on through this difficult time!

  26. Incredibly beautiful post...so sorry about Danni's divorce and the strain it's putting on her. Please wish her peace from me.
    I'm sure she so appreciates your strong and lovely friendship!

  27. Dear Danni ...my sincerest feeling go out to you as I am in the same boat at the moment and it is increadiably hard. Some days it looks like there will never be light again but trust me I know that there will be. I could never imagine how hard it would be to loose part of my extended family, friends and my home and most of all my garden that I have put so much into. Please know that you are not alone and this wonderful post that your dear friend wrote shows such love and support. All the little bits help in the end to pull us through! I pray for strengh and guidance. be kind to yourself and take the best care you can.



  28. There is nothing better than the sweetness of good friends and Julie, you showed your heart. Danni, we are with you Girl. It is through the tough times in life we see our precious Lord carrying us through.
    Many prayers and love.

  29. Oh no! I am so sorry for the pain Danni is going through. Hang in there, girlie!

    I so salute your friendship. You are lucky to have each other.

    And your blog comes with good energy and tons of great inspiration!

    Love to you both.


  30. Oh gosh.....this makes me so sad. I have been there and it is brutal. I am so sorry for Danni and her pain....so very glad she has your friendship and support during this time. I know I speak for all the commenters and your readers that there is light at the end of this tunnel....but the journey is not easy by any means. Take care and stay strong.
