It did happen.
No longer could she deny it and no longer could she try to ignore it, it happened.
She was strong-willed and as confident with any individual. She was among her peers a go-getter and pushed through all obstacles to get the job done. She had such tenacity with life that nothing was going to hold her down. Then it happened and she could no longer hold her head up with the confidence she once had.
His acts of violence took the spunk out that she had for life.
In time her healing took place and she realized that the evil he did would show he degraded himself and not her.
Time is our friend. Time heals and with time comes understanding.
In Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 speaks of time and with everything a season. With God He turns the things of darkness to light. Read Psalm 30:11-12 and praise Him!
