Friday's Quote

"Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it forgoes revenge, and dares forgive injury."
E. H. Chapin

I have been out of computer and blog world for about 2 weeks due to the monitor going out on home computer. I have felt so out of touch. Hopefully, by the first of next week monitor will be replaced and I will be back in full swing. I am posting today from a different computer.
I hope to catch up on all the blogs that I so enjoy reading this coming week.

Update: Andrea is doing great and loves college. She is beginning to get loaded down with her studies. I am working at the school as sub teacher till hopefully an aide position comes open. I am told this should happen in the next several weeks. Joey is still working out of town and is under a ton of stress! Keep him in your prayers!
Thanks for all the encouragement and especially prayers. Keep Praying for us.

Back to the quote... Do you have something that is weighing you down that you need to let go of? Don't seek ways of revenge or a way to hurt those that have hurt you. Forgive them and let it go. Sometimes we feel hurt and the person doesn't even know they have hurt us. Don't harbor bad feelings towards them. LET IT GO! You will feel so much better when you break those shackles that are holding you captive.


Oh yea, for Andrea....ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!

Great message! There are times I want to hold onto offense and bitterness because I have the "right" to feel that way (I admit it), but I always find that it is only through forgiveness that I am set free from the chains I didn't even realize were holding me captive. Thanks for sharing this!

Like you, and many of our friends on this road that circles and goes over hills and then duckes into the valleys, I am trying not to hold on to offences.

the Word says, "offence will come,
but wo to the one who causes it."

When I just typed this I realized that so many of the things that upsets us usually comes from family gives me chills to think that the ones we love most could be our worst enemy,
and according to the above verse they will reap for the things that they have done which on the other hand will only hurt us again.

Thus a vicious trial that we must get victory over, or it will only
repeat again.

Great quote!

I am so glad your daughter is getting settled in at school and enjoying it! I will be praying for you and your husband with work!

Hope your computer is back up and running soon! I was telling my husband today that I don't know how I ever survived without one!

Awesome post! I've been a little behind myself on the blogs. I'll be glad to have my friend back in full swing; I feel so disconnected when you are not on here! Glad we had a chance to catch up last night (through the various interruptions - we still prevailed!).

I am praying for you, my sweet FABULOUS friend,
