This week has been challenging for me — and most of you don’t know, but I’ve been under some pretty harsh criticism from various sites for posting this post about Resurrection Cookies.
I count it all as joy, however.
And I stand unashamed of my beliefs. I completely understand that many of you do not believe as I do, and I am quite willing and open to dialogue about it — as long as we can do it respectfully (I will not allow comments that bash my integrity or are disrespectful to my children or my Lord)! I pray my words are always gracious and loving, and no one would feel alienated or disrespected here! You are welcome to email me at any time if there is anything you question or take issue with.
If you’re new here, the thing I hope you would know about me is that I know what it’s like to walk through darkness. I know what it’s like to struggle desperately against addictions, to fail miserably in parenting and life, to lose those I love most, to feel completely unlovable. Yet, I’ve found acceptance and love and forgiveness because of Jesus. Will you take a few minutes to listen to this song? It is my heart’s cry this Resurrection Sunday, and I still cannot listen to it without being moved to tears!
Oh, death, where is your sting? O, hell, where is your victory?
O, church, come stand in the light.
Our God is not dead. He’s alive!! He’s alive!!
