Tender scars and secret hurts......



"You can trust me kindred soul... to hold your tender scars...and cradle your secret hurts...together we will walk this journey towards healing"

Where would we be without trusted and sacred cummunity...kindred hearts who walk along side some of our most difficult experiences? While I made this card today I was reminded of how much growth is encouraged when a friend is able to move into our seasons of pain and struggle with us...without judgement or offering simple solutions...without questioning the validity of our hurts...without need to control or try to shorten grief's duration...but simply joining hearts on the journey with us...for the long haul..for the length and depth of the season. My prayer this day is that you have such a friend...and that we can all be such a friend to another. This new art card can be found on Ebay!

Great message. To be the friend who can listen without striving to have the answers. To be the place of rest and comfort...inviting vs controlling. Always a pleasure to visit you. Lisa
