“Healing” Healing is a journey. Possibly a lifelong one since betrayal usually happens at various times throughout our life. It can dredge up and compound hurt that we may have even thought we were past. I often try to see or predict what the future holds. I’ll get anxious over outcomes I see in my head about scenarios that haven’t even played out. I worry and doubt and try to figure out things that aren’t mine to figure out. Life isn’t mean to be figured out. It’s meant to be lived with a purpose. If we are constantly trying to figure it out we will miss the purpose. We’ll miss the good parts if we dwell on only the bad. We’ll miss the amazing things about life and people if we focus our attention on the flaws. So today in this moment I’m grateful for this wonderful breeze. I’m grateful the sun is shining, flowers are growing and blooming. I’m grateful that my husband finished the beautiful landscape out front. That my husband & daughter finished my spool table project together so I can enjoy the front porch. I’m grateful that I can enjoy this moment to myself in the middle of the day because I have the flexibility of working from home. I’m grateful that God painted the world with so many amazing colors for my eyes to take in an enjoy. And all of that is just what I’m grateful for in this moment as I sip coffee on the front porch.
