It’s a loneliness chapter. GIMME!!!
The loss of Edward’s presence in my life was the first time I felt loneliness. I’m still learning what it means and its effects on my mind. Today I pointed out that Edward filled the role of translator for my English. Both of us think and used language differently than most people. He had a better grasp of how to communicate with people outside our “shared” brain so he was helping me learn how to do that. I’ve likely used something he taught me to write this post. That role is still empty. I need God to fill this one fairly soon so I can continue with school.
But this was once again Elisabeth pointing out that enduring loneliness while learning to use God’s strength makes us stronger.
I loved the prayer she wrote down for loneliness;
For my loneliness, Lord-Your strength.
For my temptation to self-pity, Lord-Your strength.
For my uncontrollable longing for this man, Lord-Your strength.
