A Journey of Hope
11x14" Gloss Pring
She hid for so long, no one knew the journey her weathered heart had been through. She locked the door and threw away the key a long time ago. Deciding in her heart, far better is it to hide, alone inside, than to let in those who would hurt her. She knew what it was to be alone, she knew what it was to be comfortable in this place. Here it was safe, here she knew her way around. But the day came when she found herself surrounded by the wonder of those around her. They felt safe. Her heart longed to let them in and to be known. The feeling of fear met her at the door and reminded her of her pain and past hurts. But despite all this, she felt love seeping through under her door way. And for the first time in as long as she could remember, she felt hope. With all of her strength, pushing all fear aside, she pulled back her cover and with one eye showing, she saw into the hearts of those around her...and she was seen by them as well. She was still on her journey, It was a Journey of Hope.
