Enriched through Experience….

~Enriched through experience~ Over the last few months I’ve been able to see so clearly the growth that is happening in me. For so many years feeling somewhat handicapped by life and unable to fully or properly deal with the hard lessons that came along I’ve slowly gained enough courage to want to work things out that go wrong or are difficult or unpleasant. Usually… I lived with some of the things that caused me pain… Fear held me in place… But gradually I learnt that pain was too high a price for me and that the price of confronting things in a gentle but firm way was far better for me… We’re always taught to communicate and express but I didn’t have a voice… I really didn’t. Fear had clammed my voice and when I look back now… It’s taken the last 22 years to even begin to really reclaim it… In SO many areas of life. I’ve lost things…

Count my blessings…

ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ.

Are you counting?

I talked to an old friend of mine who is alone, she is recovering from many things, suffering and all the while she is alone.

We have no idea how many people around us may be around us like that….

All I can do is call her, send her a few things, text her, and when she is on my heart I pray for a miracle!

These are things that don’t cost but their value is far above anything she or I could afford.

Just a little encouragement to count my blessings, and to do all the little things that I CAN do for those in need.

Hope this inspires many of you do something for someone today and to always think along these lines.

Just something to think about….

Floating… The test of trust…

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. The test of trust… Since I have been out walking regularly again this last few months, and sharing thoughts and ponderings with you, there has been a recurrent theme. It’s been all about water, the ocean and the sea. An image of me floating in the sea is equivalent to the trust game. I may have shared this with you before but when I was a young child at a friends birthday pool party I nearly drowned. At least that’s what it felt like to me. I managed to get myself out and I never told anyone about this incident. To me this is symbolic of where I learned look after myself, perhaps allow fear in, and not trust other people? After this incident, from this point I refused to learn how to swim at school. I went with other kids in my class…

Knowing….

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. Knowing… What do you know? There’s so much we think we know? Learning comes at us from many directions. We know based on experiences and learning, based on peace… It says in the bible that peace is an umpire… It helps us make decisions. We know things at times based on our biases, which may seem all good and well but that doesn’t make what we know right… What we know changes… It changes every day based on new information we receive. We know things based on our conscience and if our conscience is tender then we live and love from a place that is outside ourself.. We also know things by hearing from God. When we know things by God everything is in a beautiful flow there is no contradiction? What do you really KNOW today? Just something to think about! ~Cam Richmond~…

Building Walls…. Softening Our Hearts….

When my heart becomes hardened by life’s experiences I close the door more often than I used to. As a younger woman my heart was way way open its my natural disposition but I wasn’t strong enough to know boundaries  all I knew was love, mercy and compassion… Where I am today experiences have strengthened me and taught me, I’m confident more self assured, wiser, …more balanced… But also my heart has hardened in places… Experiences strengthen us and grow us but experience also teaches us to build walls. Gods presence reminds us to find a balance. Peace teaches us to find the very fine line between boundaries and forgiveness between trust and hardness. My ‘circle’ has shrunk, the people that have a key to the doorway of my life has dramatically dramatically reduced. That’s the pleasure and pain of experience. That’s my thoughts… ~Cam Richmond~ Please visit: www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound…

Known…

O LORD, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know my downsitting and my uprising; You understand my thought afar off. You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have beset me and shut me in–behind and before, and You have laid Your hand upon me. Your [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me, I cannot reach it. ~Psalm 139:1-6~ Known… Oh I am so relieved that there is one who KNOWS me! One thing that I always long for is to be understood and for people to know me. When they don’t in the past it has troubled me but now I understand that this is not always to be…
