As I go on in this life, a verse from Psalm 16 is my story: "You will show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy." That path has taken me on adventures wanted and unwanted, and led to dreams that came true and dreams that died along the way. That is my story so far. I've come to know that each of us is a story and how we tell our story makes a difference as we walk through this world. We all have broken pieces of ourselves that we've left along the path, but we can decide whether to pick them up and put them together in a new way and go on, or we can go on with the broken pieces hurting us with every step. That's our choice, and with the help of God and companions along the way, the grace and fullness of healing and joy can come.
