Facing the Bears



This is what it feels like.
But I'm bustin' through!
I feel much lighter having shared my evil twin.
. . . as shared sorrow is half sorrow.


And I appreciate your comments and support more than you know.
It really is helping me.
I still need to keep facing the bears though.
And a person I love very much needs to face the bears, too. {**I believe**}.
But for now, I can only do what I can do for me.

This is just the beginning.

As they are bound to keep appearing and they just don't go away on their own.


This "facing the bears" analogy is actually humoring me for the moment.


Love to all,

~Me
{and my evil twin, who is losing strength}

Jennifer, I will keep you in my prayers. With whatever trials you are facing, may God give you strength and peace. Sometimes our burdens are so heavy and I often wonder at the fact that it's at those times it's so hard to lean on God when we're often told how simple it is. (It is simple but not always when you're feeling like that!) I will pray that you find that strength during weary days and that you will 'defeat those bears' and see days of sunshine very soon! I'll be thinking of you... ((HUGS))

I'm here if you need me.

Much Love & God's Peace,
~ Jennifer

Ah, Jen! Life is not always "as it seems". How strong of you to reach out and admit to the "evil twin" lurking. I feel like it is so hard when the "twin" seems to get more powerful than "me". Grrr. Hang in there. I know these are just words and you have to fight whatever it is inside "alone" but sometimes it does help to know that others are thinking of you in love and prayer. So be loved and hugged from the UP. I can relate to these type feelings all too well but have always had a hard time admitting (or expressing) to them. "Be not dismayed....". May you be given strength to carry on. God will take care of you.

Love and God's Peace,
Amy:)

It feels so good to be able to admit you are not feeling well, doesn't it?
