Talk

I can’t seem to talk for long anymore without crying. This evening has held a lot of tears. Earlier, my little sister gave me the news that our mama’s next oldest sister is now in hospice care and not expected to make it through the night.

I have a lot on my heart that I cannot put into words. I want to talk about it but I don’t want to talk about it. Whatever would come out of me wouldn’t make sense to anyone else…it doesn’t really even make sense to me most of the time.

I want to run away. I want to go home.

Praise

I will praise you, from the depths of my despair and the heights of my joy, I will praise you. In tears and in laughter, I will praise you. In sickness and in health, I will praise you.

As the sun shines down and the moon lights up the night, I will praise you. As the bluebonnets and paintbrushes bloom, and the land around heats up, I will praise you. As the leaves fall, and the wind blows, I will praise her. Scorching drought and devastating floods all around and I will praise you. Beautiful days and lightning bug nights, I will praise you.

You are my everything, my Creator, my Father, my Savior, my Redeemer. I will praise you.

Here are my responses:

I have a devoted protector for a husband. Until his foot opened up again Wednesday, David wouldn’t let me go outside unless he was with me, so that he could protect me from those big dogs if they came back.

Big dogs make me very nervous and panicky now.

I’m surprised that David was ever able to convince me to let the camera or recorder capture any part of me at all.

To make a long story short, don’t ask David to tell the story.   Short isn’t his “thing”. 🙂

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Door

All I have to do is open that door. That’s all. Not anything difficult…or is it?

On the other side of that door is freedom, but also the source of my fears. Maybe if I open that door, those fears will ultimately consume me. But, maybe, if I open that door, I will be free, free to live the life that I have always dreamed of living.

Staying on this side of the door guarantees one thing: I will never be free. Fear can win whether I open the door or not. It can keep me locked inside this house or it can be there when I open the door. It can consume me, if I let it.

The only chance there is at freedom is to walk through that door.
