~*The House Where Hurting (and Healing) Happens*~

Ours is not the harmonious house, the house of accord. It is more like discord.

Ours is not the house of laughter and merriment. 

Ours is the loud house.

The house of hurting one another while we learn what its like to be safe from hurt. 

Ours is the house of yelling while we learn what its like to use our words, softly and aptly spoken. 

Ours is the house of dirty looks, slamming doors, throwing and breaking toys while we learn that no matter what we do we are safe and won't be sent away.

While the hurting is happening there is healing being done. 

Underneath the survival behaviors the wounds are being healed. 

Behind the panic the heart and the brain are learning to trust. 

Right now its a hurting house but we're can't forget we're in the midst of healing. 

Sometimes its ugly and sometimes its loud. 

But its all beautiful; just like them!



Proverbs 16:24
Gracious words are a honeycomb,
    sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
