Holding Space

My Sweet Piardev, this one’s for you

Hello My Sweet Readers,

I am so happy to be back today because today has truly been a soulful day, one that will definitely be written in my book of life!  You see, I woke up this morning super excited to go see my brother for his birthday.  My goal was to surprise him.  Unfortunately, the surprise was mine when half way there I get a call from my mom telling me he wasn’t home.  At that point I had two choices to either turn around or keep going.  I decided to do neither, instead I held space with my cousin Nancy and it felt great!  As I held space with her I thought of Paul when he wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:19 “For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more”.  Sometimes we are so busy trying to push our own agendas, that we forget to “share space” with the people in our lives that matter in order to gain more out of this life!

To hold or share space with someone means that we are “willing to walk along side them in whatever journey they are on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to ‘fix’ them or impact the outcome of their lives or ours”.  It is a beautiful thing to hold space or share space with those people we love.  As I shared space with my cousin I understood that we have been on this journey together for a long time, but it wasn’t until this moment that we understood it fully.  We laughed, we cried, we shared our dreams and aspiration and we stood in silence while each of us connected to God.  We thought of our kids and held space for them as well.  It was BEautiful, as my cousin would put it and I wouldn’t trade that time for anything else in this universe. 

As you walk through this journey my Dear, Dear, Readers, never be too busy or too closed minded to share your space with someone you love, because at the end of this journey it is love that will stand the test of time.  The word of my Lord and Savior says it best when it states we “can have faith that moves mountains, but if we do not have love, we are nothing.” Let’s BE something my Dear Readers, let’s be love and light and the rest will follow!

Until Next Week,
