"To fly we have to have resistance." Maya Lin.
It was a wild night....a night that brought two opposing groups together to fight it out. One side was determined to exercise power and control through the use of lies and deception. The other moved in kindness and truth.
Truth won. Truth always wins. But it didn't come easy. There was a struggle. Terrible tension led up to that win. Still, in the end, Truth proved the best defense. So did kindness.
The past seven months I've been part of an amazing group of people, fighting to restore a Centre in the community that for 26 years provided hope, compassion and support to many. Those who had grabbed control over the Centre had almost destroyed it and hurt many who needed the place.
The fight to win it back at times was frustrating and intense. But in the end we won and people who were fearful at first to stand up, gained courage and stood strong.
Now the task of rebuilding. To fly...we really do have to have resistance. And bottom line, He was with us and He is Truth and love. Truth and love always wins.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
