Well… the sayig it’s DARKEST before the DAWN must be true. I’ve hit some really rough paches since my last post.
I don’t even want to begin to write it all here. I tend to overwhelm myself when I start counting up all the negative stuff. Focusing on the good coming out of it all, I’ve found out that I have a much larger network of folks who are praying for me than I previously realized. I’m connecting on deeper levels to some people from my church – something I’ve wanted to do but have been afraid out of fear of rejection or disapproval. I’ve come to realize that soooo many issues I face stem from years of negative expectations placed on me by others – I’ve been trying to ‘prove them wrong’ for so long. I’m learning more and more that the wounds that time heals are pretty deep and that’s why it takes so long.
I’m aiming to write something of significance about my life here no less than once a week. I’m hoping this will help me get the most out of the Solutions class I’m taking at church. It’s based on the Book “Changes That Heal” by Dr. Henry Cloud. I’ve read one of his books and heard him speak twice now and I really think great things are coming from me putting this stuff into practice. The class/group is 9 weeks long so lets see how this goes. 🙂
That’s all for now… I’ve got lots more I want to write, but I don’t feel like writing it all right now. I will soon.
