  1. this is so beautifully written. and often a moment of panic for young husbands, when they realize their wives are just gonna cry at times, b/c they are not dispassionate creations & feel very deeply 🙂 I’ve had many conversations with my growing teen daughters regarding the same things lately….my one tomboy who says, “mom, what’s WRONG with me? WHY am i crying???” *smile* I wish high school girls had more mentors in this community of women. They can be so very cruel to each other….the ones whose Faith already has deep roots mixed in with the ones whose fears and insecurities lie behind popularity and boys and eating the other non/carbon/copy girls alive to assuage their own emotions. School can be so hard for these dear ones. You are a very inspiring writer. i am blessed by your words. TAB

      So thankful you came by!
      I will definitely join you in the prayer for more mentors for our high school girls. It is so essential that the older woman come along side the younger women as they grow. It can make such a huge difference in their lives!

  2. No words…only love for you and these beautiful words.
    I’ve never been a crier, but those years of hardness softened me, to others, to myself, to Him.

  3. Natasha girl, that was one of the most beautiful descriptions I’ve ever read. That is us women, in the real, raw world. Thank you dear friend for sharing pieces of your story here! I’m always blessed. 🙂 ~ Blessings back out, Amy

  5. We share such similar stories yet so different, Natasha, and when I can’t voice it somehow you do–beautifully! The tears will flow, and the healing will come, and we will be of more use in the Father’s Kingdom because we’ve had tears to shed. So grateful for you, my dear friend.

      I love that reminder that we will be of more use to the Father’s Kingdom– so very often it feels like we are “washed-up” and “worn-out” as we struggle through pain. But the truth is that in our weakness He is strong. <3

  6. Boy could I relate to this post. I smiled and I cried as I read this post because my heart was singing “I understand completely!!!” : ) Sometimes I get frustrated with how easily I cry and the emotions that “seem” to get in the way. I love your words we “feel deeply”. I praise the Lord for the emotions, the tears, and the beautiful scars.

      May we all learn to praise Him- even through our often blustering tears!
