If I described myself as one that tries to be kind and respectful to others. One that treats others with dignity, and looks for the good in all. That when I see someone in need I give them help, a lift, a kind word, a few bucks. That forgives someone that has hurt or offended me, even if they don't ask for forgiveness. That I am someone that is grateful for all the goodness that is shown to me. That if I am in error or see that I have offended someone, can ask for forgiveness.
That I value family and friends. That I believe we are all here for each other. If I asked you to place a "label" on me, what would it be? Would some say, she must be a Christian. Others may say, she must be Jewish. Or perhaps agnostic? Or even an atheist? Or any of the formal religions that exist? I would hope that most people accept me for the way I am, and not for a "label".
Those of you that have read my posts may know that I say I am a Believer. I do not impose my beliefs on others. I may share an event, idea or thought that has been touched by His grace. In posting such experiences, I am not looking to change anyone. I just wish to share with all of you.
I miss the ideas, issues and sharing that used to appear on this forum. I began to come here a few months ago while my beloved husband was still alive. I visit at times, but only see the "debate" issue still on folks minds. I pray that one day soon it will be the enlightening forum that I came to know.
