A very warm “Thank You” to all who responded to my post, The Day God Sent the Mailman. Every one of you did what the body is supposed to do and it was powerful beyond words.
You saw a part of the body hemorrhaging, and rushed to stem the flow. Your lengthy comments are evidence of this!
It was an awesome experience for me.
First, when I began writing the article, I had no idea that it was time for me to finally come to terms with the death of my relationship between the man I called “Dad” for all but two years of my life and me.
By the time I finished writing I was, indeed, a battered mess.
That’s where all of you stepped in. To see the body ministering to the body was a blessing beyond words. Again, I say, “Thanks!”
When I finished the piece, I nearly didn’t publish it. I felt like the piece was too risky. I also felt raw, exposed…
You saw my nakedness, and covered me with prayer and words that brought healing and comfort.
Not a single comment was invalidating, telling me I had imagined the whole thing, or ought to go see a shrink. I am awestruck!
Through all of you, the Lord brought healing to me in a new and wonderful way, one that I’ve never experienced before.
To the men who commented, I extend an extra special “Thank You.” In all of life’s experiences, chivalrous men have been the exception – and not the rule. To have you come to my aid means more than you will ever, ever know. Tears flow as I type this.
Once again, I’d like to express my appreciation for being permitted to be naked…
Today I feel…clean…light…free!
Praising Jesus for you!
