"Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words, and faith stronger than your feelings. " Dreams of the future keep us going.
How's your week? Mine was a roller coaster of sorts. We just recovered the vehicle that the police impounded when they took my husband away last October. We were sent on a goose chase for the last two days to settle paper work and locate where it is. It was stored in an impound yard in the middle of nowhere between Al Ain and Abu Dhabi. Driving the Ford again after three months felt surreal. I was, in fact, cheerfully clapping my hands as I watched it go thru the steel gates. One thing done. Now we can start selling the vehicles one after another.
What surprised me though was visiting all of these places and seeing familiar faces brought back the nightmarish and painful memories of what happened I still can't bring myself to talk about it. The experiences of the last two days definitely did something to both of us. It solidified and reconfirmed our decision to leave.
Every time memories of those dark months start floating back, I'm still thankful for those times of "Great Joy in the Wilderness" that they speak of. When I was on the floor crying in total surrender when I found out the sentence of the charge they falsely accused him of, on the brink of hopelessness and insanity, a morphine-like feeling washes over me filling my heart with unspeakable happiness as I watched the situation and problems surround me, yet, I felt untouched, unshakable and strong. These were the times I felt God the closest and the joy and peace of those moments, I will always remember.
Love & light,
