I've come to realize that I, if left to my own devices, can really complicate situations.
Because of my natural tendencies, I can be a destructive force especially in my marriage.  Marriage has been so good for me in that regard.  Because slowly, but surely, I am learning to turn to the Lord for wisdom and solutions.  I've actually done this since I was a teenager, but I guess that in recent months, maybe even years, I've wanted to spread my wings and just handle things on my own a little more.  That is a good thing, but it is always important still to include an all-knowing, all-loving Father in Heaven in our lives.  I still have some growing up to do in many areas.  And He alone will help me to achieve that.

Who am I to judge another, when I walk imperfectly?  In the quiet heart is hidden sorrow that the eye can't see.
It is frustrating to see the level of hostility people can show.  Seriously, they would stone her to death if they had the chance.

  What would Jesus do?  He understands her better than anyone else, and I'm pretty sure he treasures her.  He understands her and what she needs in order to heal and change.  Give her a chance people!

  I do believe the reason I am so understanding of her is because I have had to work through serious emotional issues within my relationship to my love.  And because of his redeeming qualities (which are comparable to some of Courtney's), he has stood by me and loved me through it.  I recognized many good things about Court…
