Sweet and Bitter…

Today was Fathers Day in Australia. Life doesn’t always end up like it does in the movies, and this is the truth for A LOT of families, more than we will ever know. And for this reason Mothers and Fathers Day celebrations are sweet and bitter…. Truth be told they have always been bittersweet to me. Clear memories of high expectations, fear of upsetting someone and tensions come to mind for me…. and so much more… For the ones that have been hurt by their parents, not had a father in their life, or known who he was, or a mother that has done so much damage, whether purposefully or because she really didn’t know any better because of her own life, then the ones that have been rejected, abandoned, mistreated, neglected…. my heart goes out. Interestingly because of this I kind of dislike reading all the loving messages on…

I forgive you….

  I forgive you…. I forgive you When you left me out When you broke my trust When you kept pressuring me When you made me feel small When you spoke harshly to me When you didn’t understand me When you broke my confidence When you didn’t reply to my messages When you didn’t let me know the answer When you cut me off and intimidated me When you didn’t care about me any longer When you made me feel silly about what I love When you ignored me in favour of someone else When I was of no service to you and you ignored me I forgive you We must forgive for our sake… It’s a command to forgive in order to be forgiven and it makes sense but forgiveness is also a gift that we give ourselves <3 ~Cam Richmond~ Please visit: www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage www.facebook.com/AmazingEternalGrace

Decisions we have to make…

Decisions we have to make… Sometimes there are decisions you would rather not have to make, things you don’t want to have to do… But, it will sometimes come to it…. And then the best thing is to do what you need to do. Hands up who loves to avoid these situations!!! My hand used to be up a LOT more than it is these days, but by now I have learnt a lot of lessons that have taught me that avoiding isnt always the best thing to do. Avoiding prolongs the pain, delays the resolution, entangles people’s hearts and minds, makes the imagination go wild and can presume all manner of things that aren’t really true. More often than not these days I face things, sooner rather than later…  I know that the pain of going through it now is better than living with pain for a long time,…

Love, pain, hurt….

Love, pain, hurt…. Love, pain and hurt…. They can send me back into my shell… In some ways I am becoming more like this… in some ways… Its hard not to climb back in when you get hurt… but it’s not in my nature to be a clam in a shell… It’s a bit of a tug of war.. I am sure love will win… ~Cam Richmond~ Please visit: www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage

The offenders in our life….

~The Offenders in our life….~ Offense has been at my door. It’s been standing that pounding on it for days. And even going to look through the window to see who’s there, when I really already know, is giving him entrance.… For me offense is tied up in hurt, rejection, insecurities. It makes me behave in a way that is opposite to how love should be and its opposite to the way that I want to be my default setting to be. When I react out of offense it doesn’t come from hate, it comes from an area in my life that has been wounded, bruised, broken, and this makes it hard to distinguish and deal swiftly with. Because some kind of hurt is involved it confuses matters, and blurs the lines of what to me are usually very clear. The only thing that will help here is bringing it…
