Discovering what love is one day at a time
Have you ever said “yes” to something, because it was something good to do even though you knew prior to saying yes that you really couldn’t. How was that for you? Was there inner turmoil over the fact that you either did not want to be there, or was it more of the fact that you overbooked yourself and something else of higher priority was suffering because of your choice? How about the opposite example, you said “no” to something for whatever reason, and knew that you should of said,”yes.” Isn’t it great that the truth hurts? Isn’t it great that truth and falsehood are like oil and water? They can only be mixed for a short time, but they always will separate from one another. Truth cuts away falsehood, and cutting hurts. Truth separates, it identifies motives, and it provides an opportunity for change. When we say “yes” to something, our behavior and actions should follow, just as when we are a “no.” If we say we are not going to do something, and yet we go and do it…doesn't that make us a liar, and vice versa? How important it is for us to keep peace in our hearts by walking in truth. We cannot just speak and have our actions or behavior be contrary to what we have spoken…let's let our yes be “YES” and our no be “NO.”
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have two young men ages 18 and 13.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
