Forty Days Til’ Forty, Day 32

Again, I am reminded of the willfulness of healing. Time does not alone ease all wounds. In time, with time, our deepest wounds are met with the salve of God’s love and in the meaning we create out of the madness of life. Time is not responsible for our healing. With God’s help, we are. Time is our greatest ally. There is a willfulness as soul meets soil to push with all endurance and break through the dirt. Healing is messy and non-linear and often feels like a web of conflicting emotions and confusing thoughts. But we must define the things for which we hope, or the pushing, the enduring, will feel futile and without aim.
