Now that I am Older...
Now that I am older...
...I realize that is not necessary for everyone to know what I think of them.
...When you engage me in conflict, I will not tell you all I know about you because I care about you. I want to continue the relationship in the future so I will not put your back against the wall verbally.
...I realize that it is well nigh impossible for the young to realize that the world does not revolve around them, even those who are in their 30's.
...I understand that I never won when I took on the Senior Pastor. I wasn't the associate to correct the HoS or run the congregation.
...I know that most stuff isn't personal, it's just stuff. If we can't figure out how to redeem it now we can pray that our situations and relationships may be redeemed in the future.
...I look for kindness in others more than the excitement of their chaos.
