Look closely at my arm. The scar at the bottom of the picture was from cooking through the Pioneer Woman cooks in January. It's still there. Because at the time I didn't have an aloe plant nor a store near by that had good medicine for this.
At the top of my arm is another scar, but good luck finding it....it happened 2 weeks ago. It's healing and I'm so glad it's not presently on my arm. My wonderful neighbor had aloe, the original plant- and it healed it.
This past week I've gone through a "wounding" , not physical but emotional and I am tending to it. In God's word, in singing his praise and on my knees- it's the only way I'm gonna win this battle that's going on inside of me. It's the right medicine for the healing....It's the aloe...and in time I hope I am not still bitter, unforgiving and showing physical signs of my hurt. Wounds properly cared for can heal. Some wounds are deep, and it takes a lot of time. I was burned on my leg as a 10 year old, had the scar for years, but 22 years later you can't see it.
So that's my excuse for being a little silent this week....I'm hurt but healing. Praise God! He is still loves me, he still sees me and he's working it out.

"Turn to me for Healing." Isaiah 6:10b
found this blog post about healing later by Anne Jackson- she says - "We are each responsible for our own healing" i found that interesting....i guess while God is the healer we still have to seek the healing
