Today I need healing. Not for me, for someone else. There is a person close to me silently suffering. It is not cancer or a physical malady. It’s inside where no one can see. She is young. She is vulnerable. She needs safety. All I say cannot take away the hurt, the twisted words on her phone. Lines of lies written by other hurting young people who don’t understand the damage inflicted can be deleted but not erased. The hope surfacing is the promise of a compassionate heart inside her growing for the future of other relationships with healing properties. I long for new souls to surface, friendships with new compassion and strength. Pray for healing.
