Love makes you do what you thought you would never do. In my past, I made clear certain choices on what I would and would not accept -point blank. Yet now that I know a new, real, & true love I know that all humans are fallible and everything isn't cut and dried or black and white to suffice. As I know God and others have graciously loved and accepted me flaws and all, it is how I know I will and can & must give grace to others. Not to be a doormat, as boundaries must be in place, but to understand with love and patience and see unconditionally. If you'd asked me even 20 yrs ago any question I would have said "yea" or "nay" There would be no middle ground, no room for grays. So with this man that I love I am giving him another chance. We will walk through this battle we have both struggled with in different ways and we will move forward into healing and forgiveness. No grudge holding or lists to keep. God has thrown my "sins as far as the east is from the west" I know I've failed Him many times over. Yet He has never given up on me and I am learning and practicing that which I have been taught. Love hurts sometimes, it excites, thrills, bubbles, overflows and most importantly it forgives. I love you Chris so very much and we, TOGETHER, sir will walk through this bump in the road. Just an obstacle, nothing that can't be overcome. As nothing is impossible with God. We just make life impossible with our wills and choices at times. It is an easy path honey, but we need someone else with us to help us see the things in our path that we may not have noticed, until they blindside us. It is not good for man to be alone, we all need each other. People need people. God created us for relationship, not for going it alone, by the grit of our teeth. That's the lie of the devil. To separate us from the pack and take us down one by one. Not on my watch hun. ;)
