A simple touch on the shoulder, a sideways glance, a crucial conversation. Moments of connection that say I am You. We are in this together. God is in “this” house as God is in every house.
It is not easy to stand in my power – God’s power – when all around me there are these explosions of discontent. No, it is not easy. At times it feels as if I am all alone and at a breaking point.
A breaking point. Yes, it is time to break open again. Time to open myself deeper still to my own vulnerability. To my own imperfection. To the realization that my work is never done, and that’s okay. My quest for knowledge is never-ending, my curiosity always driving me to new heights.
I learn from you. From watching you grow along side me. A journey different yet so much the same. We watch each other stumble and we help each other up. We walk through these days tripping and falling and, then, jumping up and down with joy. It is a roller-coaster, no doubt. But there you are, watching from the sidelines ready to reach out a hand, jump on board, and scream through the dramatic dips in the course with me.
It can get very loud sometimes.
We do this for each other and that’s the way it should be – for all of us. Never leaving anyone in the gutter. Never saying there is no value here. Even as the explosions of discontent continue, a touch on the shoulder, a sideways glance, a crucial conversation says to me, “I’ve got you”.
And I have you as well.
From my heart to yours, Diane
