I often read articles 'Things you Should Never Say to...' I fall in many of these categories. I hear many of these comments, many of these questions.
I could be hurt.
I could be defensive.
I could be offended.
But I try my hardest not to be.
I really believe 99% of people who reach out, who ask questions, who comment really care, really love. They are trying to show it the way they know how.
I pray I always respond to these comments and questions with grace. I have a beautiful example before me of a mom who I have always seen respond in such grace. I want to be like her.
The times I realize they hurt me, they annoy me, they sting me. It's because of my own junk. Me not believing who I am in Christ and who my children are created to be.
