Thankful Thursday

No one is as capable of gratitude than one who has emerged from the kingdom of night. Eli Wiesel

I still wonder how it was possible to go from nothing to so much.....from broken to restored....from alone to belonging...from living in darkness to being in the Light....How did that happen? Those years believing death was better than life....watching friends around me take their own lives or die accidently...and yet...He touched me...He broke through. He made the difference.
I am so thankful...totally thankful for

-the Freedom I've been given
-the Peace I feel inside
-the joy that fills me now
-the love I'm surrounded with
-the purpose I feel

Knowing what you had gone through after reading your book, and the restoration that the Lord had granted you as you had accepted Him, is a big blessing to me that I am thankful for. Thankful for the courage you had shown and the love you have for the Lord. God bless sister and Happy Mother's Day.
