Finding My Voice - A Journey with Selective Mutism

What does a young child do when the world around her is hostile and punitive?

What if she perceives that no one is listening?

What if she discerns that no one really cares?

Anxiety creeps in

It becomes too painful to speak and she turns inward

Inward where the love of God lives

She talks only to Him

He listens

He cares

She grows in His love

As His beloved child

Her young mind ponders His promises

And hangs on tight to His Word

Years pass

She endures many trials

Her faith unflagging

As He walks by her side

He sends her many to love

And is loved in return

She learns to use her voice

To nurture as she was nurtured

By the heavenly Father




To bury the sins of the earthly father

Wow, Amy! I love this! Just thought I would do some catching up. I went to check out your Christmas blog and you haven't been posting there but I am happy to see I can come here! I am going to try to post a little more on both my blogs, I have been on the neglectful side.

Have a wonderful Easter!

OK, I looked back on what I wrote and I meant I love how you write, you are able to share in special way and get your thoughts across. Life is a continual growing process that's for sure. Take care, Amy.

Thanks for stopping by Cheryl and for your kind words! I am not the most consistent blogger - life has been so very busy lately. I really missed participating in the Christmas fun but it just didn't happen this year. I'm hoping 2013 will be more relaxing!
