I have been absent from this blog for a couple of weeks. It’s the longest silence since I began writing The Hope Diaries in January.
In the last two weeks I have stepped out in truth. I have told the truth of what I did, what the other did, to those who needed to know.
I want to share a few of the things I have realised in these last weeks.
Truth is Strength
There is strength in truth. When we walk in truth we are released from the oppression which has tried to hold us in our shame.
When you start to see the light, there is no way that you can even take notice of the darkness any more.
The light is too bright for eyes to explore what lies outside of it.
Love takes many forms
I have been given love in a cup of tea by my bedside every morning before I wake, for the past nine months. That is a lot of love.
It’s a climb. It will continue to be a climb.
We ( my husband and I) were at a very low place, so we have to work our way up from there. But we’re climbing in the light and towards the light.
I think we may even look eye catching and beautiful
This image of a bubble is not quite right . Over the past months I’ve felt as vulnerable as the bubble, but not anymore. I/we still need some protection around us but we are stronger and we are beginning to float up to the place where we catch the light again and our colours start to show.
Lights in the darkness,
and even in the darkness the flowers have come.
Be patient. Take heart and wait for the Lord.
This post is written with the greatest debt of gratitude to all the people, known and unknown to me, who have held us in prayer so that we could reach this point on our journey. with love to you.
