I cried at first.....and then, it was such a beautiful day, that I forgot to be unhappy. ~ Frances Noyes Hart
I'm mostly strong. I've had to be. I learned to fight to survive...to not show fear....to be brave in the face of awful things. Sometimes though...I just don't always feel very strong. Like this past week....some things have happened that made me feel... vulnerable... weak...alone. A part of me wanted to let go....give in....stop fighting.
But then I remembered all those people who don't have clean water.....or good shoes....or enough food....and others who sit in prisons for crimes they didn't commit...and mothers who've lost children to sickness...or accidents....and people fighting addictions...divorce....loss.
I took a walk in the woods....to listen for Him ...to hear His whisper....to feel His presence. There I felt a touch of His gentleness...that reminds me I'm not alone....that He's right there.....by my side....His strength becoming mine. One touch from Him....and everything in my world is ok again....Now I want to reach out....to touch someone else's world....and let them know...it'll be ok too.
