We always try to run away! Whatever the unpleasant task may be, we use all sorts of methods to escape the pain and that is what I have done. I am running from the pain of losing Leslie.
Of course, that doesn't work. Our minds, our hearts, our spirits are part of us so we never escape that.
But, I am filling my mind with new thoughts, storing the memories for a time when I can pull them out and enjoy those times again.
I am filling my heart with new feelings, not to fill the hole made by loss, but to give it a renewal of sorts.
And, I am reviving my spirit, praying for peace, rediscovering that feeling of God's love and caring.
It gets a wee bit better every single day. And, new surroundings are helping me focus on the now and not the past.
This Sunday morning, I give you each a bit of my heart so that you will know how much you mean to me and how much your support and encouragement has strengthened me.
