A Survivors Zipper by Kimberlee Jones
What do you see, when you look down at your scar? The one we lovenly
call our zipper.
Are you like me? Are there times you look down and your eyes fill with
tears? Times when the fear comes back and you wonder if the end is near.
Do you sometimes feel like a time bomb that is just waiting to go off?
But without a countdown you feel so very lost.
Are there times you look down with a smile in your heart? Are you like
me and feel blessed to allowed a new start? Like me, are you one of the
lucky few who looks a life through eyes anew?. Do you look down then
look around and see the world and the beauty that surrounds you? Do you
touch your scar, right above you heart, as you watch your children laugh
and play. Then quietly you thank God he wasn't quite yet ready for you
That zipper as we call it, isn't just a scar, It's a symbol, a reminder that
God is never far. He has opened our eyes to his beauty and slapped us
in the face. It's God's reminder to laugh, love, live until the day he
takes you from this place.
