Time Out



It would have been so much easier if God had sent me to the corner as my punishment instead of my own self-imposed condemnation for being who I am.  God forgives far more readily than I. To forgive oneself is something of a struggle for me - a forgiving heart for the world but not for myself; how can that be? You will never know how many times I re-read each of the comments left on the last post explaining my absence and how much they each meant to me. I thank you a million times over for the words of wisdom, insight, comfort I took from each of you. Thank you for being the light at the end of tunnel. I wish I could say acceptance of self has been completely turned over to God, but I can't. It will forever be a struggle I'm sure, but for now, for today, I accept me for me,,,

Stephen,
Good to see a post from you. Accepting yourself for who you are is an important thing to do. It is hard sometimes to do given all of the external factors. I hope you are doing better. Stay in touch.

Make that last line your daily mantra until it feels real. For it is. God thinks so so I hope you will join up.
