Wise Words

I'm having a good visit with Nina - my Russian/Argentinian hairstylist. She is wise.
She says things like: don't be hurt by selfishness. Forgive first. Say what you must but forgive first. Don't let hate take over your heart...if you see what was done as selfishness - you will understand that is in them - don't let it hurt your soul.

Kind of related to holding all things loosely. And these are good words. I will still say what I think is true - but I will forgive. I may not be able to help hurting when I am distant from my family  - but I must hold even that loosely and hope and pray for restoration and wisdom. For new life out of this manure pile.

It can happen. My God is mighty to save.
