I’m fairly certain this week will bring with it the lesson on finding common ground. I’m consciously taking another step in the journey of faith, exercising the act of forgiveness.

I’m doing this for me because forgiveness is about bringing peace to the soul. It is not saying everything that happens is okay, it is saying I trust grace to pave the way over and through it.

This verse keeps surfacing…Taken from

Mark 12:30-31 (NIV)

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

This is a tough one when I’m not quite sure what I’m getting myself in to this weekend. Lord help us all. Jesus, I can’t promise an outcome but I will keep an open heart and listen for understanding. If the gap arises I will lead with truth and love but I will not abandon myself.

Words of affirmation, my primary love language, in excess no longer impresses me. In fact it makes me cringe. A driving element in the messes I’ve found myself in, might be the very lesson I needed to understand this person better.

So I’m handing it to faith, to break me down deeper. Going back to the beginning to Aimee Leabu.

Just one other thing, Lord have mercy can we please table the Trump talk at dinner? Because we definitely do not agree on the idol status.

Loved By Grace,
