Part of growing up,
by which I mean,
becoming more whole
which must mean, as Anastasia
pointed out in my previous post,
is to become more like Christ.
I really appreciated all of the responses from this post,
from the understanding of those who are single
to those who are older than I...
I am gathering that one of the areas of
is to begin to see one's self more clearly.
Including those areas of one's life that
suddenly appear to be in great need of attention.
Areas that for whatever reason
it seems to be hard to become whole
to be obey Christ
to become like Christ.
I am slowly
Going to church.
Be kind for everyone you know is fighting a great battle.
— Philo of Alexandria
The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
Psalm 103 verses 8-14
