Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves.
Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be
given you because you would not be able
to live them. And the point is to live everything.
Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then
gradually, without noticing it, live along some
distant day into the answers.
~Rainer Maria Rilke LETTER TO A YOUNG POET
These last two week my life has been full of stillness and recognition. I recognize all around me small wonders, key words in books I read, meditations I have chosen to make part of my healing process, comments my therapist will make, small wonders which if I am still enough to let them sink in tell me I am on the path. I am where I should be. I AM LIVING THE QUESTIONS. My questions. I call these small wonders "Tender Mercies" because I believe that God loves me so much and knows me so well that he gives me tender mercies to remind me that He is there and that my Savior's love is unending.
I can't believe I can actually say this, I like the part of healing where I don't have the answers and I have to step out into the darkness. I have never felt this way before.
