When we come to the edge of the light we know, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, of this we can be sure ... either God will provide something solid to stand on or ..... we will be taught to fly. (Sent to me today from Sharon, Golfaholic in an e-mail.)
A testament to the power of prayer........
I had entered an abyss of bitterness and anger that I had never encountered. Not even my life and divorce from an abusive alcoholic pushed me to the brink of such out of control emotions which were literally tearing me apart.
Last night I reached the absolute bottom. I could not continue to abuse my heart and soul with the anger. I posted a prayer in my entry and almost immediately Betty continued it. And just like that the anger and bitterness left me instantly. I cannot even begin to explain the peace that I felt envelop me. Yes, I'm still a bit fragile but fragile I can deal with. I know in my heart that all of your prayers were heard. I had to let go and open my heart to accept the peace.
Work went smoothly today. I was able to focus and return to my former work ethic.
And to any of my three children who are choosing to read this journal....NO, you are not burdens to me. I was burdening myself this weekend and you were suffering from it. You three are the most precious gifts God ever chose to give me. He will always provide the means for me to take care of us all.
Praises to the Lord and for all your prayers!
