No words…


Speechless. How I’ve felt since I shared my last entry. No adequate words to describe the burden lifted after making my story and feelings and struggles known. In some ways, I feel like all my pain, lessons, and writing led up to that depth of healing. That God was preparing and strengthening me to share it. And, now. Peace, joy, and acceptance.

My life has changed and I am so thankful. My faith has deepened and I am so thankful. My girls have survived and actually want me to move on and I am so thankful. My heart has broken and I am so thankful. My heart has experienced healing and come out wiser and I am so thankful. My joy is in Jesus and His everlasting presence in my life and I am so thankful.

I was texting with a friend this morning and shared with her that “I’m out of words”. She nailed it by saying “Blessed beyond words”. Yes. Sometimes running out of words is not a bad thing. Sometimes it’s the very best thing.

Speechless and I am so thankful.

For those of you who follow my blog, please follow me at “The Love We Crave” on facebook. I share my blog posts daily as devotionals. I pray they help others. They sure helped me and continue to.

May GOD be with you. May you feel Him. May you seek Him. May you find Him. May you hold on to Him for dear life for the very rest of yours. There is no other way I’d rather live. Clinging to and soaking in the love of my Heavenly Father. I have always been a daddy’s girl and I am thankful to be just that.
