How Long Lord!

by on Jun.09, 2010, under Uncategorized

I am singing at a small country church this weekend. The folks there want me to share parts of my story and sing the songs I wrote back in the 90′s when I was going through a tough time. Abuse is a topic that is not talked about, so being sensitive yet honest with my audience will be very important to me. I am in a very good place now and yet, I remember those days when I would lock myself in our walk in closet and sing and pour out my heart to my God! I felt so alone, disappointed and betrayed by the man I called my father. He was my hero and yet he was a monster. Forgiveness and letting go has been a gift that I have given myself. Did it happen right away? No, but over time I was able to let go, and walk away and be free. Free to be me and the beautiful woman that I am. Free to love others and confident in myself to share with them my pain, hurt and parts of my story. All of us have a story. We are all here for a purpose and the gift of giving yourself away is there, an open door.
