Tonight I feel like I am without words….
And so I am going to share with you the words of my beautiful sister-in-law….
sitting resting in the quiet of my childhood home, the doorbell rings… it was traveling evangelist wondering about my salvation…. i had to stop her and simply said, “I’m all good”
she didn’t persist, mercifully. and went on her way. of course she has no clue about my week and this occurs to me….
how many people might be walking around, shattered. broken. destroyed with no hope. no savior. no net holders….http://trishborgdorff.com/2012/12/30/edge-holders/
I ask you to be more patient, more gentle, more kind, more tolerant to your fellow human, because we can’t know what is on their hearts. I have wept till nauseous, and also laughed this past week with memories of my sweet love, my best friend, my favorite comedian, my biggest cheerleader. Strangers would never know that I am shattered, but not hopeless. Broken but not destroyed. a sinner but still saved. So I invite you to live more compassionately within your world for all those who might be heavy laden and still appear to be ‘all good’.
Thank you Marcia for your words, honesty and wisdom….♥
I accept your invitation to be more patient, more gentle, more kind and more tolerant to my fellow human beings.
One thought on “An invitation….”
I have a new favorite quote that means so much more to me after going through some very tragic things. I think it is very hard to know how to understand unless you have experienced it…
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Praying for you and your family
