About Me

My photo
Anacortes, Washington, United States
This is my testimony - my testimony of faith and lack thereof; of the rising and falling of hopes and dreams; of beliefs and disbelief's; of tremendous heartache and human folly; of reaching out and stepping out when all I want at times is to is pull back and step away. At the age of 30 I was diagnosed with a very rare neurological condition called Post-traumatic Syringomyelia (PTS). Please visit my post on PTS. One of my goals is to increase awareness of this terminal condition. Broken to Grace is not yet released. Follow this blog to receive an email when the final release date is announced. God bless, Ronda

Free your feet, and your soul, from the roots of shame, anger and bitterness.

Don't allow a feeling to define your actions. 

Embrace, explore and confront them. This 

doesn't give you leave to feel sorry for 

yourself; it gives you permission to be human.

But when the root of the emotion is no longer 

in front of you, then it's time to put the feeling 

behind you as well. 

Your emotions belong with the root of their 

existence - you don't. 

The roots will grab hold of you. 

Free yourself by giving up the emotion instead 

of you.
