Is that it's a place for the blogger to write about whatever the heck he or she wants to write about. I, personally, have chosen to be quite vulnerable and express my feelings through what has been the hardest life lessons I have had to learn so far. Recently I have received some incredibly insensitive comments that have hurt me deeply. 2 of them were on the post titled Griffin Jacob, the son that we lost. The comments imply that I deserve what I have endured. That I am a fake.
About 10 years ago, I hurt a friend of mine. We weren't very close, but that doesn't matter...what matters is that her feelings were not put first and she was hurt. A few months afterward, I expressed to this friend my regret in hurting her. She forgave me. I was 21 years old and have learned a lot since then.
I certainly do not claim to be a good Christian. I claim to love and serve a God who unselfishly lavishes love and grace upon all of humanity. I often do not serve him as well as I would like to. I mess up all the time. And that is why I am so crazy about God. He is my maker and he loves me just the way I am. He wants what is best for me and has given me a masterpiece filled with hope and guidance for a joy-filled life. And I don't deserve it at all.
I'm not sure if the person writing in pursuit of hurting me is feeling like they need to defend the person I was married to for 6 1/2 years...but rest assured that those who know me and who read this blog without hatred know without a doubt that I love him. I care deeply for him and that is why my heart has felt so much pain.
So I will continue writing about my journey. It's a journey filled with mistakes, grace, forgiveness, and lots of love. But most of all my journey is one of hope. And I pray that it continues to be a testimony to others that God can restore even the most hopeless of situations.
