Thankfulness~ Day 5

We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves. ~ Francois Duc de La Rochefoucauld.

Today I am thankful for the ladies who I have grown close to through the Life Bible Church Ladies Bible Study. I don’t like pretending. I have found that I don’t have to pretend with these ladies. I can be me and they actually like me.  They accept me just the way I am, baggage and all.

Many of us have been hurt in the past and pretending is how we guard our hearts and feelings from additional pain. During the past several weeks I have found that I am surrounded by real women, with real scars, and real pain. We are all at different points in our journey to healing and peace. I appreciate that I can express how I really feel and where I currently stand without feeling judged. I love that I feel free to reveal who I really am and to express my emotions instead of suppressing them. In the past parts of my life have stayed hidden from others due to previous rejections and judgements. I appreciate that these ladies offer no judgements, they only offer love, encouragement and prayers.

These women have made such an impact on my life over the course of the last several weeks. I enjoy digging into the word and learning with them.

What  are you thankful for today?
