True Story Blog Party: Week 7

I am so happy that you have returned to view or to enter our True Story Blog Party.

Abuse is everywhere - - April is Prevent Abuse Month.

Most of us have been hurt either real or imaginary, and we can choose to recoil, get angry, or to forgive and get over it. As we mature in God, I believe we tend to forgive and get over it more quickly.

Being in community is important and allowing others to view our unwashed face is not always easy.

We are all so different, and yet in many ways so similar. We are all created from the same dust and our spirits once born again, become blended into one.

May we stretch out and relax in the Truth of the words of Jesus spoken to our hearts and allow His healing touch to quiet our troubled spirits.

When I was growing up, I was told, "Children were to be seen and not heard." I broke out in tears if I needed to speak to my dad. Being harshly and severely punished when caught in disobedience, caused me much anger. It took me many years to understand where that anger came from.

Time does not always heal wounds, and they must be faced, dealt with and not glossed over. Even if the person who hurt you is passed on to glory, there still needs to be forgiveness on your part.

We know God forgives our past, but we also must forgive those who have trespassed against us, and forgive ourselves for our anger toward them.

I wrote about another method to heal the hurts of abuse and you can read about it HERE..

I am so happy that you have returned to view or to enter our Blog Party.

We will be attending a wedding this coming week end.  Our Foster Daughter Nancy’s youngest daughter is getting married to a fine Christian gentleman. 

Weddings are usually fun.  I was reminded of my first wedding when I was a very young flower girl.  I will share that story here. 

I have been in a few other weddings, but none were as special as the day I married my Robert.

My mother taught me many things, and today I share how she encouraged me to be careful of saying harsh remarks.  I must also be careful of what I write.
