When I clicked "publish" on the BE YE FOREWARNED post on Monday, I had no idea what to expect. It was my hope to lay my position on the table so as to deter nastygrams being sent to me at the peak of my hormonally-imbalanced, sleep-deprived post-delivery euphoric state.
Of course, I had no idea that what would in fact happen would be that I would encounter the most encouraging, uplifting and supportive day in this blogs' history.
It is funny how a few harsh words can drown out the many positive ones, but I can honestly say~you have filled my "happy-tank" to brimming and I won't be needing a fill-up anytime soon, new nastygrams or not. You are all very kind to take a moment to encourage and support this very insignificant woman behind the Renaissance screen. Your kind words were a great gift to my soul.
I wanted to reiterate, also, that I deeply respect those with differing views and/or standards within their Christian walk and don't expect everyone to share mine. I am extremely thankful for that percentage, though small, of individuals who have come to me out of true concern and love. It is a joy and priviledge to be able to discuss differences without offense.
So thank you, to all who took a moment (so many!) to encourage and uplift me. Words are gifts and so is the time you spent on my behalf~small moments of kindness have added up to a heart overflowing with joy.
