I fall a lot. More so now than ever before & I’m trying to handle it well, but my heart is hurting. And I’m embarrassed.
My husband was taking pictures of me yesterday, for my new #blog series … And I of course fell trying to walk up this trail. I wanted to just SCREAM, but the work God is doing on my heart is making me a little stronger to handle moments like this.
These blogs may be the hardest I’ve ever written. Mostly due to embarrassment. I’ve noticed social media likes us to portray this perfect existence. Your face is angled just right, the lighting needs to be perfect & basically, you should look like @heidiklum before its all over… And honestly, I too have participated in the pretty insta-life, because it’s fun & nice to receive compliments … But here’s what my life looks like.
And I actually fell twice yesterday. Once here & once in my sister’s home. And you know what else? I fell at the reception of my wedding! Talk about humiliation. Walking to greet another friend, only to fall to the earth … Puffy white dress surrounding me, perfect bun coming undone, holding back tears to not ruin my make-up. I had big plans for that day & a fall was not one of them.
But that’s life. You plan & dream & hope & pray, but your cross trips you up … And you fall.
You’ll be seeing a lot of “falls” in my fight song … Not just physical, but emotional, marital, spiritual … And I don’t mind letting you in, because what else do I have to do? This is my life. I ENJOY writing because it is the one place I have, where I can’t fall. I enjoy sharing because it’s my freedom to do anything I want to do.
And I read this really important book to try & make sense of it all. I want to write about that too. So if you enjoy #teamfrys & our stories, I hope you’ll partake.
My family, friends & HUSBAND are the real stars of this story. Without them, I’d have FALLen apart a long time ago. Well, them & Jesus of course. ?
See you tomorrow, ? #thankyouJesus #sincerelyholly #feb1st
