About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Forgive me my Trespasses

Sometimes a person says things they can't take back.  I did such a thing.  It is worse when it is in an email or on Facebook for all the world to see.
I felt hurt and I wanted that person to know and hurt too.  Was it stupid?  Yes!  Immature?  Yes!
I cannot take it back.  I tried to apologize but difficult to do when the person I hurt won't listen to me.
I keep that person in my prayers and love him with all my heart, but I am human do stupid things.

Jesus shows us about forgiveness and not everyone is ready to forgive. Look forward to a good 2014, and may it be filled with blessings.

I am so sorry, Deb. It IS hard to take back things we have said, or done. Just pray for forgiveness -that YOU can forgive YOURSELF and then move forward- xo Diana

Hopefully, he'll forgive you. I said something stupid on FB the other day, too. I deleted the comment but wish I'd never written it. We have to think even harder when things are in writing.
