Sadness rests on my heart today.
Yet in this sadness, I will be kind
to myself and others.

If I focus on the wound I am in great emotional pain, if I focus on the healing the pain lessens and some joy starts to fill the void. Today I will continue to be a wounded healer.

You ever notice we live in a world of statistics. So lets think out of the box, unconditional love cannot be a statistic. Step out of the world of statistics!

I've been mulling over what I want to say about the recent and unexpected death of my friend Alan S. What occurred to me instantly, was the title above. Alan's death will be attributed to an 'overdose' no doubt; but truth be known, he died of a 'broken heart', aka the dis-ease of alcoholism or substance abuse, in the black hole of helplessness and hopelessness.

I'm praying for the knowledge of God's will for me, and the Power to carry that out. I have footwork to do in the meantime. While I'm doing this footwork, and taking the next indicated step, I thought, "What if I go the wrong way again, in my own will?"
That disturbed me for awhile. Then, somewhere quiet inside, I realized, that if God is all powerful, and He has a plan for me, He will have the power also to open and close all the right doors to get me where He wants me to be, as… Continue

While I am responsible for changing what I can, I have to let go of the rest of it if I want peace of mind. Just for this moment I will love myself enough to give up a struggle over something that is out of my hands.
