BEHOLD, I MAKE ALL THINGS NEWRevelation 21:5
I found through grief and loss, it was tempting to seek refuge in my
feelings and emotions, unable to move from darkness into light.
I then determined to to do all I could in my power to hasten the
steps of recovery, to be released from the thoughts of impending
doom. I felt compelled to run from this fear, not understanding
this dark night of the soul was preparing me for a second birth,
bringing newness of life.
CONSIDER THE LILIES HOW THEY GROWLuke 12:27
I began writing many years after the trauma of of a dysfunctional
childhood, with all its baggage I carried through life. It was something
I had to do to be released from the memories keeping me imprisoned
in mind and body. And with each book I have written of my experiences,
I have dedicated them to help others who have also had similar challenges
in their lives.
WE MAY FEEL PRESSED BUT NOT CRUSHEDWe Are Hard Pressed On Every Side, Yet Not Crushed
We Are Perplexed , But Not In Despair – 2 Corinthians 5-8
One of my favorite quotes of Mark Twain –
“Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel
that has crushed it.” I found through writing it was
important to forgive, but of myself I was unable, it is a
gift from God.
