Slow Time For Blogging

I just wanted to let you all know I am still here. I am going through a period of internal processing that isn't easy to put into words and separate into individual thoughts. Posting may be pretty sporadic for a while. I will post again - just not sure when and how often in the immediate. Thank you all for your kind words of support, they have helped - continue to help. Hmm... funny how I'm suddenly shy about anting to tell you all what's going on. Ah, well. Basically, now that I am out of the familial environment, the internal issues from the sexual abuse are coming back to the forefront and the little girl wants to come out of the cellar (see posts on survival, awareness & breaking free in April, 2008). And that is going to take a lot of energy, I think. When I am up to it, I will post what's going on, but if there is a gap of time between posts, know that I am not gone - just working... thank you all, again, for your support. You are amazing.

Join the club!!! Maybe we should actually start the Slow Bloggers Club. Thing is, it could take weeks to begin something like that :)

Hi Katherine, I hope you are well. I'm glad you are still around. Blogging is not the same when you are not around.

God bless

I think it's important to honour that. And very easy to dishonour it. I think it's part of the broken down walls, if that makes any sense. That horrible space where sometimes you feel like you can blurt all your stuff out and then realise afterwards that you weren't quite ready, and then on the other hand there's that horrible place where it feels like the stuff can't come out and you couldn't speak about it no matter how much you wanted to. Yuk. Yukky yukky yuk.

Take your time my dear. There is no hurry. Big hug to you across the ether (not the same, though)

I am praying for you my friend. I mean this. When I take my daily walks, I pray for you.

May Papa continue to draw you near to Him, and bring healing, love, peace, hope, and joy into your heart and life.

Take your time in this healing time. I, too, have been through my own rough seasons (Read "My Life Story" on my blogpage for details). It's best to just rest in His leading, His timing, His way through. Wholeness comes when one is fully engaged in the completness of healing.

Blessings and Love,
~Amy :)

*smiling* Thank you. Even if I am not well, I will be.


I'll take that hug and return it. Funny. It does seem like things are not wanting to come out right now. Part of it is getting things to settle down even to sort into enough cohesive thoughts that I can even sort it out to write. Thank you.


Thank you. That means a lot to me.

You are blessed, friend.

God is for you, and you have many friends beside you.

When Christ is working in you and through you (which He is), there is no pressure, only love.

Give the little girl all the love, protection and sometimes something nice to eat. Dress her up beautifully and enjoy watching her emerge like a butterfly. I realize it takes a lot of energy and even dying, but I am really excited. Looking forward to hearing all about it, when you are ready. In the meantime - still having you in our prayers - as usual!!
[[hugs, hugs]]

Thank you,


Did you know that I refer to you an Nestus as my friends in South Africa? My friends here know about you. :-) I still would like to come visit sometime, if it can be worked out. Your support and prayer mean a ton to me. Thank you!

I'm glad you're OK, Katherine. The shyness and energy involved in all the processing is understandable. Little Katherine deserves the attention and energy that she's getting right now.

Thank you for letting us know you're ok and still there. We hold you in our prayers.

Hope the silence of the blogosphere helps you engage in the difficult work ahead.
Thank you for your kind words my way, sister.

Katherine Gunn said...


Thanks for stopping by. You are very welcome - to stop by and for any words that help. ;-)

We'll miss you but it's best to not rush these things. Just rest in Daddy's arms and allow him to heal those areas that are still wounded.

Lots of love to you.

Aida, thanks.
