It's never too late to begin the healing process from childhood sexual abuse. It's never too early to fall in love with the person God created you to be. Long ago someone made a choice to take away your innocence, but today that someone can't touch your freedom to heal.

A Bumble Bee and a Mother’s Plea

“Luke, leave that bee alone; it’s going to sting you.” I cautioned.

My three year old continued chasing the bee, swatting at it as it buzzed busily around the flowers in my garden.

“Luke, stop it! The bee will hurt you.”

He ignored my plea once again.

A thought shot through my mind. Fine. If you get hurt, don’t come crying to me.

Then came God’s whisper: “I’m not like that, Carolyn.”

Immediately I understood.

I wonder how many times I disregard God’s loving warnings in my own life and later find myself crying out to Him, “Lord, please help me. This hurts!”

He never retorts, “I told you so. Don’t come whining to me.”

God reminded me of His loving character that day in my garden. And I want to be a mother, who like Jesus, never turns her hurting children away… no matter what.

God’s arms are always open to His children at any time and for any matter what.


  1. Carolyn,

    I'm loving your blog. Thanks for this great reminder of our loving God!! I needed this today!


  2. Thanks,Carolyn. If I encourage even one person,it's well worth my time and effort. We all need encouragement. Thanks for encouraging me. :)


  3. I know that one my friend - love it :) Remember, I told you I read it from our book when I spoke with Joel's preschool mom's group several years ago. Love ya and think of you often. Will you be at writer's group in Nov.? I plan on going :)

  4. I'll try and make the Nov. meeting. I haven't made it yet this year, but I have good intentions each month. :) I hope to see you soon. It's been too long. :(

  5. You need an "amen to that sister" reaction to check off. Ha!

    Thanks for the reminder!

  6. I LOVE that idea, Christy! I'll see if that reaction is an option. :)
