Truth Heals

I recently heard an interview with the author of a book called Truth Heals. She spoke a lot about how the secrets in our lives ultimately destroy us physically, mentally, and emotionally. Our body's health relies on our state of mind and by hiding things, we use too much energy keeping it from the surface that it pulls much needed energy away from other parts of our functioning bodies. While I am not much of a reader, that conversation intrigued me to the point of prompting me to order the book.

The reason I share this is because I want you to order it too, read along with me, and discuss how it pertains to my situation. There are certainly particular people who I definitely want to join in the reading and conversation. Those people are, in no particular order: ept1, free2beme, alaestadian, alexandra, cvow, mnfriend, onespirit, darla, exmplsllc, faith, oalc-doubter, keranen, daisyaday, sondra, truthseeker, rebounder, she curves mobius, and garden.girl.

Also, if you can and have the courage, I would love for you to send me an email and tell me a little about yourself. If you wish to remain anonymous, I most certainly will keep it that way. I definately want to hear from sondra, daisyaday, exmplsllc, and she curves mobius as you have expressed interest in corresponding.

I will let you know when I get my book and how much to read so we can discuss certain parts at certain times. I am so excited! Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

If you need my email, it is:

Love you all and I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you.

Taking Back Ground

by Jaylen Braiden

Taking back what is mine
my soul
my passion
my mind.
Now is to manage the damage,
sweeping aside the wreckage of the past.
Now is to boldly laugh Ha Ha!
Possessing myself at last.
Locusts have devoured
the foliage of my youth.
Now it is spring time
behold the new shoots.
Taking back what is mine
my soul
my passion
my mind.
Redeeming the time
I thought was lost.
Re-possessing myself
what ever the cost.

He Has Made All Things Well

Just because I do not have the energy tonight to write things that are on my mind, I thought I would post a beautiful hymn and poem that is often heard through worship houses around the world. Beautiful!

Also, I ask just a little prayer that I would be given the strength to continue battling cancer and everything that it has become in my life. It hasn't been an easy journey. I appreciate all your love and support.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
He made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well. - C.A. 1848
