Thank you Joyce!
Scout, I think I understand what you're saying. There is "saying" that we judge ourselves the harshest, but I really don't think so sometimes. I think we see the "problems" or "sins" others have, but tend not too look at our own.
But when it comes to problems, our own seem like mountains, but when we look at others troubles, our really don't seem quite that big.
Illusion, I've been guilty of the same! That's what brought the poem about.
I have a dear friend who's struggled and is struggling with some very severe things.
And after talking with this person, it really made me stop and think about what I was complaining about. It made me change my mind in a hurry. My problems were piddly compared to theirs. I had no reason at all to be complaining. I'm thankful I'm healthy, I have 3 beautiful childen, a good job, food to eat, eyesight...and so much more. I can take a walk, enjoy the outdoors. So many things we take for granted, that are truly a blessing when brought to our attention.
Know Jesus, Know Peace
