Hibernation

It has been a month since my last podcast. I apologize for that. I have been so busy and a bit stressed. No, actually, I have been a LOT stressed. So I decided to hibernate from the world for awhile.

Not physically. Emotionally.

I think I have always done that – hibernate. It may have been a way to protect myself during my childhood. Protect myself from the inner pain of being an incest survivor. The inner pain was worse than the physical.

So after my sister died, I retreated. Into myself. Into books. Into prayer. I never felt alone however. I knew I was OK. I knew I was with God. He wrapped his arms around me and let me mourn and cry and rest.

And then I wrote talks for a retreat I led last week. The subject? Peace.

Go figure.

  1. I’ve been praying for you.

  2. Thank you, Susan. I appreciate that. Prayers are probably the reason I am doing better. 🙂 I gave a retreat last week and talked about my sister and we all ended up crying!! But it was a good cry, if you know what I mean.

  3. I have to admit I have not been praying for you – I am a very new follower – I like your word “hibernating” – it’s what I’ve been doing – I have forgotten how much your word bless – welcome back – I’ll keep reading and try to get my life moving again – God bless
