If you are determined to gather life's honey, to stick your hand into the hive again and again and again-to be stung so many times that you become numb to the pain, it persevere and persist till those who know you become unable to think of you as normal, you will not be called mad: you will be called authentic. in love. trish.

grace some more

Grace comes to us in two dimensions, vertical and horizontal. Vertical grace centers on our relationship with God. It is amazing. It frees us from the demands and condemnation of the Mosaic Law. It announces hope to the sinner-the gift of eternal life, along with all its benefits. Horizontal grace centers on our human relationships. It is cahrming. It frees us from the tyranny of pleasing people and adjusting our lives to the demands and expectiations of human opinion. It gives relief-the enjoyment of freedom along with all its benefits. It silences needless guilt and rmoves self-imposed shame. Charles Swindoll Grace Awakening in love. trish.

Oh, the comfort -- the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person -- having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. in love. trish.
