A Daughter of the King

I don’t know if anybody is out there listening or not. Hello?  It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog here. Almost a year. It’s been a hard year.

I’ve gone through some of life’s storms and sometimes I’ve felt really alone. I know that’s true for a lot of people. Not just me. Sometimes I wish there was a button I could push, when things feel like they are just too much to handle. I don’t want out. I just want to sound an alarm and see if anyone comes because basically at that point, I have no idea who cares. Of course, I would hope someone would. Unfortunately, when things get that bad, I don’t think I would even feel like pushing the button because I probably wouldn’t believe that anyone would show up.

So the introvert in me just hides away in the safest place she can find until the storm passes. Sitting there in the darkness, I begin to remember who I am. I am the daughter of a King. And I begin to pray and then I seek out God’s word to fill my heart and soul again. My heart begins to soar as my Father’s love surrounds me and uplifts me. And I remember how blessed I am and I begin to feel thankful. That is the beginning of the healing.

If you feel alone and wonder who will come if you sound an alarm, I want you to know that I would. I really would. You are not alone. And your heavenly Father is always there, always waiting to talk to you, to hold you and to make you feel safe. Until we talk again. ((HUGS))

    Donna Jean, I rarely check my email. I have nearly 1500 unread messages!! I happened to get on here tonight and saw your blog or whatever it’s called 😀And wanted you to know that I would come to your aid! I’m sorry you are having a rough time. But you are right – God definitely cares for you and for us all!! I do care about you and hope to do better at staying in contact with you 💕 Hugs and prayers to you.

      Oh, thank you for the kind words, Jean. I am so glad to hear from you. I tried to message you on FB the other day and couldn’t find you on there. Thought you might be taking a break again. Hope all is well with you. Text me sometime or call. I’d love to talk to you. ((HUGS))

        Yes I deactivated that stupid thing but kept the messenger part so I could contact folks about the reunion. But hopefully this year I’ll get enough phone numbers of folks that I can delete it all and be done 😀 I got rid of my television and now if I can stop playing HayDay every day, I’ll be doing 110!! LoL

          lol I wish you the best of luck with that! I still have my Facebook but I use it for special interest groups (homeschooling, knitting, budgies, writing, etc.) and try to avoid all the drama now. You know you can call me or email me anytime! I think you are a wonderful person and I feel blessed to know you.

  • Hi,
    I’ve thought of you often lately, and all my friends back in SC. If you sent out an alarm I would come, but I haven’t heard from you in forever. Sorry it has been a rough year. Praying for you and the family. Big Hugs, Paula

      So good to hear from you! It seems like it’s been forever! I miss my Walterboro family so much sometimes and I think about y’all often. Y’all were such a blessing to me during another storm in my life. I won’t ever forget the love you all showed me and my family. Thank you for your kind words again. Love you too! ((HUGS))

    I love you Mom. I’m always here if you need me. You were there for me during some of the darkest times of my life.
