Good morning dear ones! I began this morning with, of course, my coffee. I then chatted with a Survivor who emailed yesterday for the first time. Abuse is no respector of Holy Days—we all know that oh so very well.
And then, I prayed over each one of you by name.
I prayed you experience a day of peace.
I prayed you experience a bit of God’s love.
I prayed no matter what your day looks like today, you will find quiet rest in it.
I lifted each of you to God’s throne and laid you in God’s arms.
God has you. That may frighten you. That’s ok. If it does. Remember, I prayed peace over you. God is the giver of peace. God holds you for healing. Lean into that if you can.
God has you. You may not feel that. Don’t fret. It doesn’t change the facts.
God has you. You may be angry at God and me for this prayer. That’s ok. We can both handle it. God already had you. God never left. God sings over you to gentle you with God‘s love. You have reason to be angry.
God has you. That may bring you great joy. I rejoice with You.
Perhaps you feel a confused jumble of some or all of these things. That’s ok. God’s got us all.
I love you, My PorchSwingers!!
You are in my heart today and everyday
