Protected And Safe

Darkness swirls through my waking dreams, fears and irrationalities

But the comforting pat from a mother’s hand in the night to calm me

Huge waves threaten to force me back to shore

But the strong arms of a father lifts me up and over them all, into the glory of the ocean

Fears of being alone and unloved rise up

But the constant embrace of love from a husband’s arms reminds me over again otherwise

Unknown futures and fears of illness and pain lurk

But The Father, the Holy of Holies, the Prince of Peace shelters, calms, saves, gives hope

Protected and Safe

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
