Posted by: | Comments (0)

WritingWhen I was a little girl, I had a diary. It was just a cheap cardboard bound little book with a lock. I kept the key hidden away. Had anyone really wanted to read my diary badly enough, the lock would have been simple to break, yet having a lock on the diary was a sign of power.

The one I was “covering up” and the tiny little scars up and down my arms are from a car wreck when I was sixteen.  The big scars on my leg and shoulder are from motorcycle and bicycle wrecks. Yes, I had my own motorcycle for years! I have the scars to prove it!

I thought of how many times I have tried to hide my emotional scars resulting from “wrecks” in my life.  With each stroke of the makeup brush, God’s voice became clearer.
