That beautiful time of the week slipped into place without notice.  Friday, you’ve come all too soon and yet right on time. My heart still needs to play a little catch up and my head wants to process oh so much more.  Time swooshes by and I’m reaching for air to exhale so I’m ready for a little ditty of writing without editing. Five minutes without frills.  The real, raw kind of writing that hits my soul in a refreshing way.  No holds bar. Whatever pours out onto the page.  And today, we’re writing on….


I crinkle the sides of my face when I think about the beautiful thing the Lord did.  If you’ve seen my face and the laughter that comes when talking about this story then you’ll know that I’ve found my safe place.  I found someone safe who listens to my whole story.  I laugh because for so long I kept secret about this refuge because I hadn’t learned how to swallow my pride.  Most often people gets bits of my story and bits of my heart.  Those who know the whole story lodge themselves in the depths of my heart. This healing process with this counselor friend mentor peer beautiful soul  unfolds in unexpected ways and I’m realizing that the journey toward wholeness requires telling the whole story.  The more pieces I tell the more I come together and fold unto myself in wholeness amidst the brokenness. God loves hearing me share the whole story. So do other people. The real parts of life. Life’s too short to skimp on these.

  1. There’s so much truth here! I have found that allowing myself to be vulnerable and share the broken pieces of myself is essential to the healing process.

  2. I was just sharing with someone the other day how important it is to have those people in our lives with whom we can be real and vulnerable with, holding nothing back. It’s healing to be able to share my brokenness with others.

  3. Oh friend, don’t skimp ever! Let it loose to the ones you trust, knowing that there is such release in the freedom of telling…. you have such beauty, such a lovely heart. I always enjoy reading here… God bless you!

    • you hit an important point….to the ones you trust. that’s something that is so essential and key in sharing the whole story. because not everyone is supposed to be that close to us, but we do need those people who are 🙂

  4. I love your writing and reading your blog! This is so, so true. People get a better glimpse of God’s grace and God can use our stories when we tell the “whole” of them. Thank you for sharing with us today!!

  5. I love this! I participated in this Meme today for the first time and really didn’t understand what to do. NOW I do. I can hardly wait to hear the subject so I can really join in.

    I am so grateful to have those in my life who DO know the whole story — not just broken bits and pieces. They are my true heart-friends.

    Bless you!

  6. Oh how I know that editor that take hold of the whole story. Lovely piece of writing. Slowly I try to write into the hole, the wholeness of my story, by opening the dark and torn places to the full force of his light. Nx
