I love Deidra days at (In)Courage! 🙂
And I loved this post. Wow, you know how to work a metaphor so beautifully.
This post reminds me of a Scripture passage I’m learning:
“This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence, whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.” 1 John 3:19-20
Thank you for this!

Yes so beautifully written that I enjoyed every word for its own sake!
But you do share so freely in writing. You may not realize how generously you share and encourage in your honesty and vulnerability, for which I say, “Thank you!”
