This writing is very powerful

I am sitting alone at the pool


I feel that I am on the verge of a life changing event

I have fear

But I have love

I am certain that everything happens for a reason

I am certain I am supposed to be here alone

I am certain that God loves me

And that I have been protected my whole life

I know that my truth lies dormant in my soul

I know that there is great pain there

And I know that every step I take is preparing me for this truth

And in this truth I know that I will be safe

And I know that I will be healed

And I know that what will be revealed will be something

That not only helps me but will help many

I am so grateful

I understand that we are all on a journey

And that we all help one another

Even when it looks like it is not help

I know the antidote to fear is love

And I feel love like I have never felt before

It is not the clingy I’m afraid you will leave me kind of love

But love that comes from creation

Love that binds us each to the other

In happy times

And in times of great tragedy

Love that wants to help

Love that wants to do things

Love that wants to understand

That every soul is doing the best that they can

At any particular time in their life

Bless me with this knowledge

So that I may live in this place

Walk in this love

Believe with my whole being that it matters

It matters

It ALL matters


Lorrie ❤

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. I like the thought of you walking amongst love, I believe it to be your natural habital…but then you’ll blend right in with the environment. No fear, we seem to have a knack for finding each other & ourselves. Sending you a warm, fragrant and peaceful breeze. xo Harlon


    1. 🙂 That’s beautiful, Harlon. Thank you for the gift of your words. I have now been up for 25 hours straight…and traveled 1250 miles by car stopping only for gas and restroom….long story. I may not be very present for a few days. I wish you many blessings ♡

  2. I love the power in these words. GOOD power, beautiful to behold: the power of LOVE. It almost took my breath away (in a good way) as I read it. Perfect title! You know, this series would make a great book!


    1. Hi JoAnne 🙂 Giant smile. Thank you for expressing what you felt…I love it!! And thanks for saying it would make a great book…one day I WILL have a book in print 🙂 Much love to you ♡


  3. “Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; (it) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…” (1 Cor. 13:4-8)

    Many know this as an example of the unconditional love of God for us…”Agape” love. But if we can learn to apply this depth of love to others, especially to those closest to us, we are loving like God loves. And if those we love in this way love us back in like manner, our relationships will be enriched beyond words!
