My #bare face is big for all to see.
I’m 58 this year having outlived my mother who died at 57. I have lots of #laugh lines, #cry lines and #joy lines. Sometimes, as our bodies grow older, we face things we never knew we would face. Sometimes other people can help us face those things as we move forward. Have you ever lived misunderstood, disappointed or divided by man’s assumptive opinion? But at the end of the day, it’s face-to-face with you and face to face with me. It’s a new day and in the midst of more tears there is opportunity to trust Them more. #Bare. It literally can be excruciatingly painful and bitter and sweet all at one time to come face-to-face with yourself. In the mirror you see into your eyes lots of mistakes, lots of desires, misunderstandings and also many years that if I concentrated on them I would want a do over in. #Bare. And choosing Joy that allows contentment? Now I believe the me I am today is acceptable and pleasing with or without my paint and I’m learning not to allow the opinion of others to taint how I see myself or how I believe God sees me or intimately knows me. Interesting tip. Others are going to misunderstand you. You are going to make mistakes. You are sometimes going to be flat out wrong. And sometimes you’re going to be correct. But is it really about right and wrong? Reconciliation is always the heart of #Christ. When you remain divided, it is not his idea. The cross was enough. The blood was enough. #Resurrection is enough. Forgiving and being forgiven should be our immediate go to – not a have to – but an immediate ..”I’m forgiven and you are #forgiven.” Righteousness, peace and power in the Holy Spirit is who lives inside of me. I am his house. I am God’s House and you are too. Bare.
I love to write and always knew I had books inside me from since I was a little girl. If you have a book in you and want to be published all over the world – feel free to be attend this free training (it is how I got involved myself). https://vt226.isrefer.com/go/aaevtrng/donnareinersignited/
