Sharing the Journey

I am on a trip that I never imagined I would take, yet I am here nonetheless. I have decided to share my journey. It is a journey of healing. My hope is to one day arrive at the destination of my journey, wholeness. No doubt my journey will have tears and sorrow, but it will have laughter and joy as well . I will do things that are good, and I will make mistakes. Some will not understand parts of the journey. Hopefully, these friends will allow me to make my own way. They will help guide me and encourage me along the way. But ultimately, the journey is mine. The only way to ever reach complete wholeness is through complete honesty. So I will not “sugar coat” and make things pretty. It will be painful, but it will be beautiful. Most importantly, it will be real!

“There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.” Philippians 1:6 (The Message)

  1. Have I, too, been on the journey? The very one that my son has had to help me through? You, too, will overcome the darkness and realize that the world is still a beautiful place. Remember, I love you and am here for you. My prayers have been with you since I "heard". Alice Chance
