Sharing My Heart
Hi, everyone! I'm veering away from my normal posts today to share something on my heart.
Last week and this past weekend it seemed that everything went wrong. A series of 'mishaps'-a minor car incident/accident, our basement flooding, a serious fire at my parents' rental property, being sick, and some relationship 'drama'- left me feeling hurt and bitter, bringing me face to face with some of my attitudes and feelings that I'm not proud of.
It's so easy in this blog world of picture-perfect homes and families to forget that everyone has their own struggles. That we never really know what hurtful or painful situations another person is going through.
So as I struggled with these issues I had to remind myself that I am human, not perfect, and I am not alone.
I prayed and decided that if God can forgive, so can I. I can forgive others and especially myself.
I decided that we all need to be a little kinder to each other, and again, to ourselves.
And I decided to be thankful!
Because beyond these short-sighted circumstances, I am incredibly blessed!
I hope this encourages you if you're dealing with some less-than-desirable situation right now.
Or even if you're not, then maybe you can reach out and encourage someone else!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you have a wonderful day :)
