No Mistakes, Only Purpose

  1. I try to live my life this way.
    It sounds silly, but this reminds me of the saying “God Don’t Make Junk” with the picture of a little child. As the parent of 5 children, 4 of whom had been tossed away by their parents as “junk”, I see the beauty in each and every one of them.

    • Hi Lindsey,
      Thanks for stopping by here and leaving a comment. Is there any greater love than raising five children with disabilities, four who were seen as mistakes? I don’t think so. God bless you for who you are and how you shine a mirror for the rest of us.

  2. It’s not easy to accept this unconditional love of God when we’ve been taught how sinful, stupid, lazy, dumb, etc. we are as we were growing up.

    • It surely is not. As you write, it’s a level of awareness that creates dark thinking and in that world, all there is is dark thinking. It feels like we’ve been set up somehow, encouraged to believe there is no real love or beauty or grace or forgiveness. I guess it’s like being on an elevator and sometimes we go down to the basement; sometimes we get stuck on the second or third floors, and it takes a lot of faith and prayer and meditation to move up to the higher floors, where the reality is completely different–like getting off the elevator and walking into another world. We’re here not to do this only for ourselves, but to invite others onto the elevator with us and ride it up together. Thank you, Anita!
