Peace and Quiet ....

.... are not two things that I've felt a lot of over the past two years.
Not that I haven't experienced quiet .... I have .... sometimes too much quiet, right? But I haven't felt the quiet .... inside of me. Not like I used to anyway.
But there are days now ..... finally, that I am feeling more at peace .... and more quiet.
Certainly not every day. My emotions are still sometimes all over the map on any given day, but there are more good days.
Of course every once in a while there will be a bad week ..... but they are few and far between. It's nice to have them down to just a day or so .... or maybe even to just a few hours in a day.

I can remember the days when I was just trying to survive from moment to moment, even though I didn't really want to.
And then it grew to hour by hour .... and then a few hours at a time.
I've come a long way.
But not by myself.
There have been many people who have helped me along the way .... and many of them are the people I've met here.
So thank you to all of you who've encouraged me .... day by day, minute by minute.

You've helped me to feel the peace and quiet.


  1. Janine, this is so full of His peace. What a blessing. I didn't comment on your other posts on your site...because it seemed redunant to what the others had written. You have inspired alot of people the past two years and the "new" you will continue to inspire people, that there is hope on the "other" side. May you have a blessed peaceful day today. prayers and hugs, Mary Lou

  2. I am so happy that you are finally to the point of finding peace. That has been my daily prayer for you. All I ever asked was for you to find some peace. That makes me so greatful. I love you so much.
