When I am deeply inspired by something I love to write. The submission below is only one of many times I have expressed myself in words. There are times that the writing flows from the heart with ease. There have also been times that I am awakened in the night guided to express what I need to know and do. These moments are always miraculous.
We are so grateful to be offering a monthly Parenting Support Group open to all Power of Love Community members who feel called to be a loving presence for the children of this world.
Rich and I were never to have crossed paths at Purdue University. He was a graduate student in the clinical psychology department and I was an undergraduate who had just returned from a year abroad in Spain.
With great joy and deep gratitude, I completed my Spiritual Counseling Certification process a month ago. I am grateful to Rev. Jennifer Hadley and the spiritual counseling buddies, my mighty companions, and all the clients. It has been a journey in every sense, literally and metaphorically.
You cannot tell by looking at me
But I had a broken heart.
The pain was so great that my heart
From the weight of it.
And through that crack…
Shown a light.
