Misery for Love
by Gina Fenske
Have you ever had a time in your life where you felt so hopeless that you didn’t know a way out of your own misery? That time for me was 1992 and on September 2, 1992 six months into dealing with my son’s life-threatening disease, my husband losing his job and our family heading into financial ruin, I sat down with paper and pen and wrote the nastiest, angriest, honest letter to God that just seemed to flow out of me without constraint. I can still feel the sense of relief and freedom at this outpouring of angst. As my writing slowed down and my body began to calm, something shifted inside of me and I could feel myself let go as I began crying for help.
That day saved my life because shortly after that doors started opening for me. I learned about Louise Hay (How to Heal Your Life), Marianne Williamson (A Return to Love) and A Course in Miracles. I had become a dried up sponge and now I was receiving water and soaking up all that I could learn with enthusiasm. It has been twenty-five years of learning, experimenting and putting into practice the lessons of A Course in Miracles that have led me to the happiness and freedom that I feel today. It has been a challenging road however I have no regrets and I quietly celebrate September 2 every year as the day that my head finally cracked open and I allow God in.
I have always believed in LOVE. I capitalize the word because I am referring to unconditional Divine Love/God Love from which each one of us is created. I just didn’t know how Divine Love could be a practical asset on this Earth in my daily life. With twenty-five years of practicing the principles of A Course in Miracles, I now feel that I am capable and qualified to teach and share the practical application of LOVE on Earth.
Fast forward to 2017 and I am introduced to A Course of Love. My heart knew that I finally had the structure of this curriculum in my hands to teach others about living a practical life with Divine Love as our companion. This opportunity is a dream come true for me.
