“….there can be disappointments and hurts that cripple us. You have a choice as to how to respond to the hurt. When you or I take into account a wrong suffered, we will grow bitter. Bitterness is like a cruel prison…”

I received a letter in the mail this week from a dear dear friend. A friend who challenges me in more ways than I realize. This friend asks the best thought-provoking questions and always remembers how to bring anything we speak about back to the gospel.

As I read these hand written words on an olive green note card;  the black cursive ink, written from a heart of wisdom with many stories and lessons learned, yet still learning… my heart sank. Sank deep.

Simply because there is freedom in the midst of this heavy statement.

It is all about choice.

My response.
