Tomorrow is brand new

I guess I when you are hurt by someone and you choose to forget and forgive, it's like a huge weight is lifted from your shoulders. Everything is brand new. I still remember, but it doesn't hurt as much. When someone tells you that you are a complete failure and an embarrassment to their good name, it hurts. But I took it and admitted that I must have done something wrong, in their point of view. I know things will still be hard trusting won't come as easy as it did before, and I know that my guards will be up to the skies, but eventually, even those will come down too. When I think about it too much the pain comes flooding back. But then I take a deep breath and forget again. And believe me I am no saint and forgetting is hard for a quizzer who spends their time memorizing facts, to be able to pop them out on the drop of a key word. But I guess I figure that the brain space will be better used if I let go.
Right now I am reading Laurie Alice Eakes' "Lady of the Mist" one of the best new Christian books of the year! At least I love it!
Since nobody reads this. I guess I could say anything and nobody would hear me scream (theorioretically). But I reserve that right.
Over and out!


  1. I hear you Faye,

    Forgiving is easy. Forgettin? Not so easy.

    But there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus!

    Oh, and now you are heard so don't scream too loud. My ears are sensitive!!

  2. Wow, I just left you a really nice, long comment, Faye and Google ate it.

    Maybe Google knows best.

    I love the honesty of your blog.

  3. Hi Faye,
    Remember you are a child of God and He doesn't make junk. He's the King and you're His beloved. Can't get any more awesome than that!

    Hugs and love!

  4. Faye, you made the best choice in forgiving. Good for you! You'll be better off for it. And the walls will eventually come down. It may just take a little while.

  5. First: Love the blog name and the scripture verse.

    Second: Oh my stars, I cannot WAIT to try that recipe!!!! I'm printing it and I will let you know what I think although I'm kind of witchy about food, and somewhat critical and maybe just a little OCD, but....

    Don't let that scare you, honey!!!

    And now that you know people have found you...

    You'll be puzzling over what to put online, LOL! But every writer, every woman, every teen has felt like you do right now and thank GOD!!!!

    (Oh, I love that God!) it gets better as we mature and can sort out the important from the not-so-important.

    But Faye, I still (admitting this ruefully) have trouble keeping my mouth shut.

    Oy vay. ;)

    Here's some cyber chocolate from See's Candies. Warren Buffet knows good stuff, honey.

  6. Hi, I just wanted to thank all of you lovely ladies for encouraging me during a really rough time in my life. Your encouragement mean the world to me. Thanks;)


I love to hear from you!
