The start of this tenet was first posted with two others on Oct 1, 2013. Since then, 90 additional hours have been put into this difficult piece. Truly, I wrestled with this one, mostly the trusting and surrendering. It is now my favorite. I have two more tenets to complete to finally finish the full Serenity Shelf.

Honoring IKE

These many, many months have taken TONS of courage. I shall, however, with all my processing of this ponderous grief, start to post again. Through it all, I have been working on the Serenity Shelf—through all the pain of the loss of My Light. My Life. My Ike. Tears . . . whatever can I say? The Trusting / Surrender tenet has taken more time than I ever could have imagined. I continue to jab away at it, for it has become my current pet tenet. I am honoring all the time that this work takes. Honoring Ike.
