Hi everyone.   It’s been a while!  Here is another “Letter to God” from Dana.  Dana has written several “letters to God” – you can see them here.  Blessings,  Jodi

My dearest God,

Strange to think where I’ve ended up and how I’m not at all too surprised, because even from the beginning I’ve always felt lost, like I never really belonged anywhere.  I unknowingly felt empty, hoping to absorb some sense of who and what I was, never really quite sure of my place, not only in my family but also here on earth.  I’ve never really known myself, just bits and pieces which made it easy to pretend.

I’ve always felt somewhat like a chameleon who could blend and conform to wherever the wind happened to blow me, with no real place to call my own. Sometimes I feel most at home with these so-called bands of misfits whom also are bruised from the winds tossing and are damaged fragments of women, also looking so desperately for a place to belong and take root.  It’s crazy how easily friendships and bonds are forged between these bricks because all its inhabitants are seeking something similar and up until now most have been trying to fill the bottomless void caused by something we don’t understand with many unholy things that only make the original voids even deeper and wider than its original state.

It’s odd what I’ve learned about myself.  What I’ve managed to bring to light in this dark corner of the world that I’ve been forcibly shoved into.  It’s amazing what glows in the dark now that I’ve taken the time to search for who and what I really am.

Thank You Lord, for loving me.  Thank You God for giving me a place I finally belong.  For letting me see inside myself and for giving me the knowledge that home is wherever I kneel to pray.  “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nothing present or things to come, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  (Romans 8:38-39)

In Jesus’ name I pray,  Amen.

All my soul,
