Standard

Good morning, Dearheart. 

My heart can’t get past the devastation in south Texas. As spiritual as it sounds, gratitude is not always the best response to a challenge.

Or, an injury. 

Or, a sudden force into a different season.  

Loss is loss. 

Fear is fear. 

Survival is survival. 

You wouldn’t tell a friend who has been abused to be thankful for it. No. You’d hear their pain. Premature positivity would not be right. Genuine reaction that causes real emotion and stings and forces nonstop tears is where comfort starts. 

Be shocked. 

Be mad. 

Be hurt. 

Be where it is unknown and ugly. 

Become friends with the pain and sadness for a while – like you would your suffering friend, and love them all the more for being raw with you. That’s where God begins His work – in the realness of the suffering …

Father, You are my Shepherd, and the Shepherd of my children. When we walk through valleys as dark as death, remind us of Your presence that we will not be afraid … You are with them … You are with me. Let Your kindness and love stay … ever-present … no matter the trials, the heart pains, the physical pains, relationship pains, the growth pains. 

“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.” Jeremiah 17:14
Wake up. 

Cry out to your Creator. 

Allow His healing to touch you. 

Go.

Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey.
