“The Breaking Our Shell”


“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.”-Khalil Gibran

Within each painful crack lies a sneak preview of the understanding yet to come. When we finally crack open, each piece of understanding we’ve gained reveals its whole meaning. This isn’t to make light of the many difficult things we are going through or have in the past. It gives a chance along the way to find hope and meaning. For who wants to crack their shell open only to find it empty, as if everything we went through was for nothing.

There is always an understanding waiting to be reveled even if it seems minuet. “The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.” John Zabat said. Everything matters. However, if we let our hurt, bitterness, and an unforgiving heart stand in the way. Then the painful cracking will continue hurting us, and we’ll never come to understand why.

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
