The Shackles ARE Falling

As I was sitting at the computer this morning, I heard the following distinct phrase in my head....

the shackles are falling....chains of the bondsmen no longer are bright. (LDS HYMN #237, Do What Is Right)

Yes, it is true. Though the past couple of days have been rough. Some of the things I have been working through have been hard......the shackles are falling.

The puzzle pieces lay on the floor.

I have walked away.

My hands are free.

The shackles are falling.

I am "brightened by hope".

I am pressing onward.

I am worth it.

The shackles ARE falling.

It feels wonderful!

Good to hear! Keep your hands spread apart so you can't have them snapped on again. Hugging, working, etc. Best of luck!
