Learn your lesson well…

When I think of all the emotional upheavals that came with being a teenager and those during adolescence, not to mention the things that we were going through as we were growing up, I can tell you now for certain I would never want to go through all of that again. Do you remember that ‘heart pain’ that you felt deep on the inside, the ankst, the insecurity and confusion? Everything felt so vital, but yet it was only a piece in the puzzle. At around that age I think there must be some chemical or hormone that is being released inside you that elevates every emotion to a heightened sense. From the time that these difficult lessons start is the beginning of a major part of the making of who you will be. You begin to sense different things in your life causing you pain, and perhaps they shouldn’t,…

Making peace with the pieces…

Making peace with the pieces. I am having a melancholy moment. I am always letting go… The past is the past and its gone really, even though I continually try to drag it into the present. Fragments of the past remain with me here today and its up to me to keep sweeping them away when they trouble me, or to find the pieces, put them together and then shelve them after I have made peace with the pieces. Sometimes I come across a group of fragments that create a beautiful image, a memory of something precious and when I find them I can fit them together to make a whole picture and keep this treasure together in a frame on my mantle. Its lovely to come back to these images and revisit with the memory. Sometimes I miss what has gone, really it may not have gone. Really it…

Love and Justice

Love and Justice For me, I don’t know about you, it’s so hard to understand love and judgment both being a part of God…. I am fairly certain that most people see God either as loving or judging… but the truth is that He is both love and justice. Before God created us the world was all ‘right’ but when sin came in, so did ‘wrong’. We see that if there are things are right, then there are also things that are  wrong too. If there is ‘right’ then there is there is ‘wrong’…   God is not all one attribute but his make up, not that I pretend to know or understand all of it, is complex and so He is both love and justice. Actually I think that love and justice are inseparable. However from a human, mortal standpoint…. trying to see the cohesion of love and justice is just…

~ Disappointed~

~ Disappointed~ You are allowed to be disappointed, you are human and you have feelings, desires, boundaries, and needs…. but try not to stay there for too long. After all other people are human too and you can’t expect them to live up to your expectations or needs all of the time and you probably don’t live up to all other people’s expectations either. No one can do that! I extremely dislike disappointment in all its forms. It not only hurts you at times, but it can also crush hopes, dreams, desires, it can spell the end of something. Disappointment is a heaviness that hangs and sometimes it takes a good while to go away. Often when we are disappointed it’s when something is beyond our control but many times it can even be in our self. Disappointment is very real, you feel it deeply but once you have recognised…

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
