Some Words For a Wounded Heart

I cling fast to words that speak aloud what I’ve only thought.

I collect sentences that eloquently express what I can only feel.

Others have been here before and left breadcrumbs.

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

One thought on “Some Words For a Wounded Heart”

  1. Thank you for ALWAYS sharing from the depths of your heart ♥️ I woke up the morning feeling such an ache in my heart, missing my son and feeling so very overwhelmed with an ugly divorce, that reading your thoughts at least helped me feel human!! That was huge for me today. My nieces and nephews are again now to a place where they will pass him up, and that is again a cruel reminder. I thank God everyday for my other 2 children that help fill my life!❣️ However the space that Tim left is so very big and I can’t seem to manage the emptiness.
