the second occurred today when i found out a family member lied to me. and, even worse, it was a deliberate lie - for no other reason than to "stick it to me". that REALLY hurt! and it has yet to be resolved. i'm sure the resolving will not be easy, but hopefully it will avoid any of those life-long-lasting deep seated feelings.
sometimes life is not so fun. some days people are not so nice. i suppose, whether old or new, intentional or unintentional, whether on the giving end or the receiving end...hurt feelings are just part of it. after all, we are only human. sinners. thank God we are saved by grace!
words cannot express how thankful i am for grace! i know i need it. i know i'm nothing without it. now i just need to be willing to bestow it on others. Lord, help me.
