"Why do the birds go on singing? Don't they know its the end of the world? " Asks Brenda Lee in her song "The End of the World".
It is true, when you have love and lose it, it is absolutely devastating. You are trapped inside a bubble with only your hurting thoughts, feelings and emotions, and you cannot fathom why other people are walking around, smiling and laughing, and carrying on like your heart isn't absolutely smashed to pieces!
This is a really sad state of being to live through! It is a miserable way to feel.

If you thought this was going to be a sad post, you are, I am happy to say - WRONG!
As you all know, readers, I have had my fair share of sad and sappy Brenda Lee-like sad and sappy songs ringing out of my keyboard for the past couple of years. But! That has come to an end!
I am singing a NEW SONG now! I am singing 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams!
Why am I so happy? Because I have found the answer to Brenda Lee's question...Why do the birds go on singing????
It's because, even though having love and losing it and feeling like you are going to die, it really IS NOT the end of the world! It may the end of the world as you know it, but the sun does go on shining! The stars do keep glowing above! The sea does continue to rush! Your heart does go on beating! And yes! You will cry tears and people go on about their business - - - because the world keeps going!
The reason it does, is because you heal, you find new reasons to smile and laugh, you see the world through different eyes, you learn there are new (or old) reason to live! And there the world is, continuing on and waiting for you to catch up!
If you have loved and lost, or are hurting for any other reason, do not give up hope! Pray to God above to heal you! Ask your friends and other loved ones to pray for you! Post prayer requests for an 'un-named' person if you are too shy or embarrassed to ask for yourself...God KNOWS who they will be praying for! God listens. He cares. He will heal you! I am living proof of this!
I am happy because God has lifted me up. He heard my cries and felt my pain and he has eased it! He has helped me realize all my blessings...including my daughters, my grandsons, my extended family, my friends, my job, the list goes on and on! He has put a new person in my life that makes me smile and laugh, and makes my heart skip a beat! God wants us to be happy! God LOVES a good romance!
