fight for me

Posted: November 26th, 2010 | Filed under: life | Tags: | 4 Comments »

have you ever done something stupid?

have you ever added shame to shame?

can you behave normally in a situation that is far from normal?

stop requiring so much more from others when you know you can’t measure up to your own standards.

it’s easier to forgive offenses of which you’re guilty.

those are your limits, not God’s.

He is not created in your image, love. you’re created in His.

we all do things we wish we could take back.

can you grant them grace?

a fairy with no wings, can you grant their wish?

what’s done is done. it’s time to move on.

when one falls away, fight for her.

fight like it’s you.

    I just finished reading the last 3 posts you have up…as I have been behind in my reading over the holiday…

    I am so thankful for the fuel that you give to the fire of grace. Some days it is grace that keeps me going.

    On another note the sentencing date was postponed. We will have to wait until the 9th of December before we know what the next part of our journey will hold and what the legal outcome of this will be. Until then, we wait in a very strange kind of limbo.

    I love the concept (when one falls away, fight for her).

    Isn't that the way it should be? not to should on ourselves but even Jesus said 'one is just as important as the mass'…when one sheep strays he said the shepherd will go find it.

    We need to love on each other in such a way that when our hearts get hurt we can seek to heal it in the company of someone who will understand and pray with and for us. God bless you.

    Yes, I know who: holidays compounding family pain. My heart goes out to you.

    Sharon O.: we are tied to one another in such a way that what you give is the measurement used when it's your turn to get.

    I think one reason we set such high standards for others is so that they WILL fail and we can feel better about ourselves.
