That's meant in a good way. Reading this and "The Cycle of Abuse", I appreciate what you're bringing up to our attention and that you're being honest with us and with yourself. Keep it up. You have a way with words and getting peoples' attentions. I think you can do tons with the things you write! (not that you aren't already. I think your writing is great :)) Heather Jones Thu, 03/21/2019 - 20:25 Permalink In reply to Heather, this is beautiful by Libby @Libby You are so thoughtful and kind <3 Thank you. I’m glad you appreciate the message because, yeah, I’ve been thinking about it a lot and it’s just been so crushing to think that people loved and cherished by God have been treated so horribly. Ugh. Thank you a million for your kind comment though, for real <333 “planting seeds inevitably changes my feelings about rain.” —luci shaw. psalm 84:10 esv.
