It’s been a while since I have written regarding my heart. Maybe because this world seems to be spinning out of control and I am feeling the effects of it.
This I know…I am a sensor…and for someone like me, it is very challenging to not be able to have all my senses involved in understanding my world, especially relationally.
Through this pandemic, Johnny and I have spent many hours out in our yard and garden. It has blessed my heart and soul so much to be able to smell, feel, touch, and see all the blessings that we do have.
But, when it comes to relationships I have struggled. This is because I am a sensor. I need to feel, hug, and look into the eyes of others, to fully feel secure and safe in relationships. This may seem vulnerable to say, but I am believing that others are feeling the same effect themselves. My emotions have at times gotten the better of me over these past few weeks. (I would be the first to admit that my emotions have many times gotten the better of me!) But this pandemic has taken them to a whole new level.
Our world has been shaken, and continues to be, but we need to keep holding onto the promise that God gave us…telling us that He will never leave us or forsake us. (Deuteronomy 31:6 and Hebrews 13:5)
Today I share photos of our newly blossoming wildflower garden…something to remind us all that there is still beauty and new beginnings in our shaken world.
