When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you. African Proverb-an appreciation for my body...for so long I fought against my body.... punishing it for being raped...but now I accept it as a gift....a means to move in the world....and which to experience all that life has to offer.
-courage to share my story....telling the truth of what happened has shown me that it's giving courage to others to stand up and share their truth.
-Peace.....I used to be restless...not now. He's given me a calmness so that I appreciate living....sleep, great food, amazing smells.....and sounds that fill my soul with songs.
-tears.....I never used to let myself cry. I thought it was a sign of weakness and I was afraid if I did cry I would fall apart. Now.....I see tears are a sign of healing.....something that takes the edge off.....and softens my heart
Gratitude.....How do I express to Him all that He has given me?
