Anger, anxiety, bitterness, jealousy, shame, fear
Firming rooted in my faith in Christ
I now have the courage to get my hands dirty
Digging deep and hard
As much as I hate weeding
I do enjoy that satisfied feeling
Grabbing ahold of an ugly, unwelcome root
Knowing it no longer lives where it does not belong
A recent visit to Chicago to drop my middle OS (olive shoot) off at Moody Bible Institute, allowed me to return to my roots.
I visited two of my childhood homes
I do not think it is humanly possible to visit a childhood home without tears
Aaron took some pictures of my home
Cars speeding past as fast as my life
The Hubs took me to my first home as a baby
Pangs of grief but love
Time stood still there
Visiting roots, keeping the good
Pulling weeds, removing the bad
No over thinking.
No extreme planning and linking and photographing.
Just FIVE minutes of writing to see what comes out.
