It’s been so good to be here and think and pray and recount God’s faithfulness! It's been healing! Tomorrow we go home. See our picture? We are looking sadly out the window of the beach cottage saying good bye to the beach. Ha! What a lovely time we have had, not just at the beach, but with the Christians here.
One year ago I was invited as a guest to a women’s tea. Mom had been in glory six months. I thought I’d be able to jump back into life, and everything would be “normal” again. What I found was that there would be a long process of recovery for me. Today I’m recounting God’s faithfulness in the healing process. I was overwhelmed at that tea. I found it hard to be in a crowd. I didn’t know how to act. I could hardly carry on conversations. My nerves were shot. When I got into my car to leave, I knew I would never speak at a women’s function again. I couldn’t even simply attend.
Here I am a year later having spoken to a sweet group of women and thoroughly enjoyed them and the Word of God. I’m thankful God leads His dear children along. I have learned about post traumatic stress for caregivers. I have learned of God as Jehovah Rophi, the God who heals. I am learning of God in new wonderful ways. God, my sanctuary! Wonderful! I praise Him!
One morning at the breaking of bread, God gave me this song.
It's been one of my songs in the night.
Through time, with all its changing scenes
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
