You see those stairs right there? I am intimately acquainted with these stairs. Did I say intimately? Yes, intimately. You cannot see all of the stairs. There are two sets of stairs. I have to climb around 55 steps on the right stair case or around 65 steps on the left side to get to my cabin. The first day I was at camp, I realized that by 10AM, I had already climbed them four times. You do the math and tell me how many times those babies are climbed each day. I was going to say how awesomely buff my legs are becoming, but that hasn't happened quite yet. But at this point, I can sprint up them without running out of breath. I can hear you all woo-hooing right now. Thank you, very much. :)
With this new day, I am keenly aware that when I wrote my first Google review about my church experience - an experience that is still affecting my family today, I knew that this was a big, big battle. I was aware that it was going on in other churches. Somehow in a very strange happening, God chose to use my case to help spotlight this thing we identify as spiritual abuse. It happened quickly and now we have this amazing place where people can tell their stories, discuss how it happens, what it looks like, the results of spiritual, how to not get into a bad situation again, and so many other topics. These topics are real and very relevant to so many.
The picture of that staircase reminds me that we are climbing this battle. I am going to keep climbing the staircase of this battle even though my court case is over (at least for the time being). I am committed to this battle. Stay tuned. I will write more later when I get home. Our camp counselor's meeting will start soon, so I want to get this posted and read a few comments before our last full day of camp begins.
Big hugs to you all! Please excuse typos. I'm typing fast!
