Shoving my foot in my mouth/An opportunity for Grace

People comment here that I am ao "real." I am. To a fault. In the real world it causes so many problems. I had a friendship end recently because I "was just too honest." I didnt say anything bad about my friend but she thought that maybe I had. I am stil crying over that atleast daily. It has been 16 months.

Today I decided to type out a quick message on facebook. I was trying to encourage a friend who had just become a step-mom to adult children. I tried to say that people dont like change and families are werid about people being "added in." I said it very poorly, gave an example from my life and then hit reply all and sent the message to a bunch of people and my sister in law too. I sent my sister in law a message right away trying to explain and sent out a "please disregard previous email." I wnat ot fix this but I think IM just making it worse. I screwed up. I hope I ahvent hurt anyone but I cant take it back once I stupidly let it out there.....

It's cute when this baby does it. Not at all when I do, yet I do. I now feel the need to call everyone and tell them that I screwed up. Why? Isn't that desire to tell to much what got me into this?

I haven't had breakfast or lunch yet and my daughter is waiting to do Math with me. but here I am in tears over the keyboard again.

I'm sure it will work out. I have duh moments daily, and I figure those around me know I don't mean anything by it. :)

No tears, just math!

Shame OFF you! Grace ON you! :)
"Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone." It's a good thing God's love for us is so much bigger than our screw-ups. We ALL need that!

Exactly what Wendy said! I soooo often want to take back everything i said and then i torment myself with it for a week. GRACE be with you and Mercy apologized which was the best thing you could do. Now just, by the Love that flows through you, keep being the loving person you are and no hard feelings will come of it.

And, to make you think about happy things, i tagged you here!
