We all have people in our lives that we wished were.........nicer...more considerate....deeper...sincere...just... better than they are right at this moment.
We have seen them at their best, have experienced joy when they give us that best . We smile at the kind things they did or said. But when the worst part of someone comes....how do we handle it? Where do we go when we know what they are capable of giving and they close up and shut you off? How do we reconcile in our hearts that who you love and have let into your life can treat you with such disregard?
I don't know. My guess is as good as yours.
But I do know The Lord knows. And so I'll follow Him until I figure it out.
