Good Sunday evening! This where I spent the entire afternoon todaysitting on Bernice and writing.
I got, what I think will be, the most difficult chapter completed today. At least the first draft. I knew this chapter was coming and I struggled with it more in my head, than I did actually writing it.
At one point, I was coming to a very hard, very private moment in my life that only a handful know about. As I approached that part of my life, I closed up the porch doors and texted my BB (who was outside at the moment) that I was writing a very hard part, so please don’t call or text me. He simply texts back, “Okay.” 😶 It must be hard for him at times, not quite understanding me, but still loving me.
And yes, there were times I had to stop typing due to tears. My memory is razor sharp in many areas of my life. I can easily relive my momentsmy memory doesn’t discriminate the good moments from the badit recalls it all.
So after I finally completed this particular chapterI texted my BB and asked if we could sit outside for a bit.
I open up the porch doors and I see he had made me tea and quietly left it on the coffee bar. ☺️
Maybe he understands more than I realize. ❤️
I join him by the fire pit and he asks how it went - meaning my writing. And I told himI hope God is happyand I’m grateful God forgives me.
He smiles at me and asks if there are “hopeful, happy parts” in the book? I tell him, of coursebut sometimes, we have to show how broken we are so others can see how much work God had in front of Him.
Becausewe ARE a piece of work. 😉
And with God’s love, we become His work of artwhile a work in progress as well.
As much as I love my porch, I didn’t see a thing today except my memories. But I love seeing it in pics! Thank you Jesusyou ARE the best builder!
Hope your Sunday was special and a quiet night. Thank you for all the visits today too!
