1. Sandy,
    You’re right on, again! I greatly encourage you to share from the deepest hurts in your heart, as much as you can. From there flows a healing salve for other people that they won’t find anywhere else. Who wants to walk through their darkest valley alone, when they could hold the hand of a friend who has been there? You are a shining light, my friend. Happy New Year to you!

  2. Sandy,

    Happy New Year.

    Once again, you are my virtual twin! I can relate on so so so many levels. And yes, I also have tattoed on my forehead: It’s not about me. Many times, I choose to wear bangs — the spiritual kind so that I don’t have to look at it. Or it will be those times that I choose not to be narcistic and look in the mirror and see it point blank.

    I have been amazed at the people the Lord has allowed my path to cross. And today as I was emailing with someone who has become a dear friend I wondered, “I wonder what God would like to accomplish with this friendship”. At another time in my life that would have been shocking to think of — but lately, I would say, “wow, Ana, so profound.”

    And yes, have met some people and come across some blogs where I wonder how on earth did this happen and in my heart, I felt God saying, “you are part of the relief team; the ones to renew the prayers, the hope and the encouragement. Fresh energy for the fight ahead.” And I respond, “Bbbbbbbuuuuuuuttttt God, I’m so tired. I haven’t slept in 4 days ’cause I have this horrible cough and…” And I am reminded that I keep hearing messages about Zachariah and wondering if my voice is going to be quieted until God says so.
