I’ve been feeling down the past few days. It’s not major but not minor either. But on the upside, Daniella and I had an interesting conversation last night. She asked me what do Nancy and I talk about, but…I don’t have to tell her if I don’t want to. I thought that was very sweet and insightful for a 12 year old. I explained that we talk about almost everything and yes sometimes we talk about her and her siblings, but not always. That Nancy listens and may explain why I might feel a certain way or pick up on things that I don’t feel are important. I have a caring daughter. I’m glad she feels comfortable enough to ask me such questions and in a mature manner.
I’ve been praying in hope that a The Lord will relieve this down-ness. One of my wonderful choir friends said something to me last Thursday that is sticking with me still. She said that God uses your weaknesses and wounds through which His Light spills out of you. You are then able to bless others when you expose the humble, hurting parts of yourself. I found this really profound. This blog is/has been an outlet and source of healing for me. I’ve received such feedback to keep writing, something I never expected, I had no idea anyone would even read what I write.
I can only hope God’s Light spills out of the parts of me that are wounded and that that light is shining and touching someone else.
I really heart my choir family. My friend received her words from a book “Dear Jesus” by Sarah Young.
