Now that Thanksgiving is over and I am now looking forward to Christmas, I am contemplating my feelings around this holiday. Back in 2007 my now ex-husband asked me for a divorce. It was just as my 2 daughters were coming home from college for their break.
As I ponder about the friendships in my life, I consider a small group of women who have been in my life now for about 9 or 10 years. We met at church. And over time, we became connected in an intimate way. When we started meeting once a week early in the morning with a cup of tea and our bibles,
What is true love? I began dating the man I would marry at age 15. We got married at age 22 and divorced at age 45. So for 30 years, I thought I knew true love. At the age of thirty I met Jesus. He began to teach me what true love is.
This Thanksgiving season I find myself thinking about the last 6 months of being in the trenches. Growing through something difficult takes time. Working through my past abuse is something I thought I did many years ago. But I am finding that new things come up to the surface that I can choose to deal with or not.
