"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!

TELL YOUR STORY



There are many ways to tell your story.

Besides sharing my story with my t. and a couple close people, blogging is my biggest outlet to share also! Never in my wildest dreams did I think blogging would be so beneficial!


“Some abuse happened at a time before you had the language for what was happening or was so traumatic that your brain stored the experience in images and physical sensations rather than in words. As a result, you may have no words with which to capture your experience. You may not be able to relate your story as an uninterrupted narrative with a beginning, middle, and end. In this case, you may find it more effective to tell your story through dance, movement, drawing, writing, or other creative forms, where you can communicate using imagery, metaphors, and symbolic language.” (The Courage to Heal)


Above is where I actually blog from. Many days and nights I would cry at the keyboard as I would type a post of mine or read someone else's pain.

  12. JBR,

    A picture is a thousand bytes of life. These pictures give me an insight into the person you are, it makes you real. It makes you real for me in so many ways I can't explain it. It is wonderful.

  28. A year and a half ago I signed up for a blog when I was looking at a friend's blog. I gave it a title and then forgot about it. Then last month something jolted my memory and I actually started blogging. It has been an amazing experience so far. I have posted every day since I started (except one Saturday). I found out about NaNoWriMo and signed up for that, I intend to keep my blog going, and also keep following and commenting on other blogs. I've been unemployed for 7 months now and since I've started blogging I'm starting to become much more organized than I have ever been before and motivated toward trying to make a go at my dream of being a writer.

    Thanks for the writing space pictures -- it's cool to see others doing the same as what I am and what their work spaces look like. I may have to put my work space on one of my posts one day.
    Good luck to you!
