I consider myself a pretty strong person. I mean, don't we all see ourselves in that light? After all the pain, heartache and suffering that we go through, when we come through at the other end of it, don't we think, "Damn! I can't believe I made it through that!"
Well, I have a confession. Sometimes.... I don't feel that strong. Oh, I may look like a B.A.M.F. who's got the tiger by the tail. But when I am alone, and trying to hide under my covers... mmmm not so much.
Sometimes, the pain is agony.
Sometimes I feel utterly alone and completely broken.
But I have also experienced something A-M-A-Z-I-N-G in that.
There have been several times in the past couple of months, where I have been in those moments. I have nothing left in me. No fight. No spark. Empty.
And in the very moment of the deepest dispair a strange and perfect peace embraces me, fills me and refreshes my soul.
Just when I think - I can not go on any further... I am restored.
