Stay in the closet

Matthew 6:6
But when thou prayest, enter into thy closet,
and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;

Matthew 6:9
After this manner therefore pray ye:

Matthew 6:12
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes.
In order to be free, we must learn how to let go.
Release the hurt.  Release the fear.  Refuse to entertain the old pain.
The energy it takes to hang on to the past is holding you back from a new life.
What is it you would let go of today?
~Mary Manin Morrissey

I will only be forgiven by Him as much as I am willing to forgive my neighbor...every morning...every afternoon...every evening...

When things break

15 months?...can you be serious?

15 months since last we spoke? I have lived and died and reinvented myself 8 times since then.

How did so much time just evaporate?

My re-entry into Blogville will probably have to resume slowly.  So, I will leave you with this little thought I ran across today...

When things break, 
it's not the actual breaking that prevents them 
from getting back together again.  
It's because a little piece gets lost - the two remaining ends
couldn't fit together even if they wanted to. 
The whole shape has changed.

~John Green
