I've been through some pretty severe abuse and have often wondered where God was during all of it. Through the years I've come to discover that He was right there; He preserved my life. He preserved my creativity, and today I enjoy photography, knitting, handspinning, vegetable gardening, birdwatching, and playing my guitar.
My healing process hasn't been easy, and there are many days that I struggle with putting one foot in front of the other. But if I give up, then my abusers win, and I sure don't want that to happen.
