Erin~

I went and read your anon comments. Grrr! I wish I could direct them to read the 'my story' portion of my blog and dare them to comment.... Hmm... that's probably not the right attitude. ;)

Prayer request I am going out of town for 4 days to take classes in emotional and spiritual aftercare and grief after trauma. Should be confirming and healing, but I am very anxious about all the unknowns, totally new experience, just me and God - I do not know anyone else. Thank you, Kimberly

I am offering my prayers up for you Kimberly

Tyler Dawn said...

Kim, just went over to your profile again and wanted to add my prayers for the healing of your heart. I accept you with open arms sweetie, and I know that God is going to continue to dry your tears and remove the lies from your heart that have prevented full healing. Big hugs

My prayers as well.

For the word:

IRON AT ABSOLUTE ZERO

Yes Kimberly - my prayer for you is that it won't just be information - that Jesus will specifically meet you there.

brittle - a bruised reed

"A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out."

I just love our little corner of the blogsphere! Where else does something like this happen? We gather together in brotherly fellowship, fun, prayer and encouraging one another. But wait - isn't that church?

Thankfully Broken said...

Thank you, I really appreciate all your prayers and encouragement. Yes,this does feel like my idea of church.

I'm praying for you, too Kimberly. Feels like church to me, too.

Brittle: my hair if I dye it too often.

Kimberly I hope what I wrote didn't sound bad, I don't think you've formulated lies or anything, you have gone through so much and it is absolutely real and true, it's just that the enemy tends to come in and twist things up, and it makes it so much harder just to walk through it (like the dreaded "what if's"). I know the pain and the very real and justified emotions must be suffocating sometimes, but I also know that Abba has no desire to leave you this way. Big hugs to you :) I wish we lived close so I could just let you cry in my living room with some fresh baked shortbread and tea.

Tyler Dawn,
Thank you for being honest, truthful and caring. Survivor's guilt and stuffing it in are both the result of how things get twisted all around in the aftermath. And you are right I have to go back to go through it to really thrive, yuck. I should be packing, but I just posted about what I remembered this week, I have found my emotions - k

Kimberly~

*big hug* My thoughts and prayers are with you -that Papa will hold you and guide you through this. Hmm.. I have some of the same lying ahead for me...

Love,
Katherine

prayers all around indeed.

I'm going to award this round to Katherine Gunn for
DRIED FLOWERS

which somehow seems to me representative of the answers I also liked of "bruised reed" and "broken spirit"
