Friends, I know this space has been deafeningly quiet of late, and I feel I am finally able to share the reason behind this silence. For some time now, I had been experiencing a weightless free fall from which I was unable to land. I have battled within the grips of anxiety for many years, but my mom’s sudden death opened up a hole in my life that has been a bottomless abyss through which I have been falling for some time. A few months ago I finally reached the bottom, and like a perennial plant, I remained dormant there for a season.
After this latency, I worked to push my roots through the hard clay soil, attempting to anchor myself. Since then, I have been clawing my way out of this pit and I can now say, I have returned to level ground and can feel the soft rays of sunshine upon my skin.
I am now prepared to begin the real journey, where I will work hard to spread my branches and stand tall, so I can then feel the full radiance of the sun upon my face. Won’t you please join hands with me and come along into this season of new birth?
