Have you ever felt like you were waiting for the next heartbreak or the next catastrophe to happen in your life, well if you have you are normal, like the rest of us, believe it or not we all have those thoughts, correct me if I am wrong. There are some things that I have done in my life, that I thought, ď The judgment of God will surely come to me nowĒ, but the Lord had Mercy, why I donít know, other than the fact than to realize the Love of God and that His Love and Mercy to us, and it never came. Also to show us that the things we learned in the family were not all what the Lord wanted. I know some will say that nothing we learned was of any value, but I donít agree, but the love and mercy of Jesus is something I never learned, only now am I seeing it. You can learn a lot, but if you have never learned to feel or know the Love of God, you have not really learned.
When I was in the family, I had a picture of the Lord as merciful, but not very tolerant, but thank the Lord since then I have learned and realized the Lord in a way that I had never known him before. I am so glad that I am where I am, I donít think I could have learned the Love and Mercy of the Lord in the family. I know I have a lot to still learn, but I wanted to share that.
Have a Merry Christmas. Love David C.
