Celebrating with Hopefulness

All good things must come to an end, and Journey Week is no different. Ending with a Celebration Dance is fitting, as there is so much to celebrate after a week of intense emotional heart work both in and out of group.

Hopefulness enters, as the truths and skills that were practiced all week prepare to integrate themselves into real life back home. It’s a tricky translation.

Oh freedom!
Freedom to be who I am.
To be kind to myself and my family.
To bask in my story’s redemption.
Kindness means no pressure to journal.
Waiting to leave for home on Sunday, because I’m too tired to push myself tonight, and I’d like to enjoy my friend for one more day.
Kindness is reading back over my story with no condemnation.
Thank you, Jesus, for this gift.

Thanks for heart-composting with me! I appreciate your words.
