"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

FOLLOW-UP to CAUGHT OFF GUARD


I am aware of the deep healing I will need from my past sexual abuse, but I was not going to let what happened to me yesterday get the best of me today. I so desperately needed to take in the pool again tonight, so I pushed forward despite my reservations.

Butthead was not there and if he was I was gonna ignore him. I was okay, but on guard. Normally, I am always on guard of my surroundings, but more since yesterday.

Thank you all for your encouragement and support!!

  22. Hello,
    I just read your two last posts. I have not been able to read blogs this week.

    I am sorry about what happened to you at pool. It is good you are able to go back to enjoy your pool and ignore the problem. I hope you continue to find rest there.
    ♥Hope
