What I’m Waiting For

What I’m waiting for….

Christmas, peace, family getting together, walking better, eggnog

Music, losing weight, Jesus coming back, hugs, understanding

Always waiting, but maybe,

By always looking forward I’m missing the now

The beauty of right now….the messes, the expectation,

The reaching for something, the trying, the loving

The starting over again new each morning

Knowing that God’s faithfulness is there through it all.

Wide Open

1086

Honesty can scare because there is no hiding

Words and feelings bare and exposed

Wide open

Honesty can heal if honesty is kind

Words and feelings showing care and concern

Wide open

Honesty is found in the face of Love

The One who died for us and all our words and feelings

Arms wide open

Mercy wide open

Heaven wide open

Talking About Pain

th36FH1DSU

Talking about pain is a funny thing.  Some days I want to ignore it, and try to act like I used to.  I push through, laugh, pretend, and then collapse in my trusty recliner a few hours or a few minutes later.

Other days, I need to talk.  I need to let it out, to vent, to cry, to have someone tell me that it’s going to be alright, to let the volcano erupt a bit.  And then rest, and pray, and just be.

The thing I am most grateful for is for my family and my friends who are there for me, whether I’m talking about it, or not.  The people who love me irregardless of how far I can walk, or how grumpy I may be acting that day.  The ones who can get me laughing.   To all of you…..I love you and I appreciate you.

If you are out there in internet world, and need to talk….I am here.  And better yet, there is One who will never leave and never forsake you.  Jesus is here also, and listening.  🙂  Love, Lisa
