"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Take a chance on saying you're sorry

I found this article that really speaks to some things in my life. The words of a Chicago song come to mind.

It's hard for me to say I'm sorry.
I just want you to stay.

After all that we've been through,
I will make it up to you. I promise to.

And after all that's been said and done,
You're just the part of me I can't let go.

...addendum...when I say I let someone doesn't mean I take credit for their actions. The sad part is that something that was once very good, is lost.

Pardon me.....but what the hell is this? Have you done something that needs this kind of personal hatred? Are you going through something that could use some outside prayer?

Lets just say that I have a friend who has been rather upset at me...and...I am afraid I have let this friend down. I guess I wasn't understanding enough...
maybe I didn't give enough space... perhaps I said something I shoudn't have.

I don't know.

Prayers? :)

My husband found a quote in a book he was reading that is apropo...

"You really only become human when you understand that the world will break your heart, and you keep on going."

It is a terrible feeling to have if you believe that you have let someone down. We have all felt it at one time or another. I have been known to insert both feet into my mouth at once, so I am certainly no stranger to that. The most painful cure is being honest about it, and that is also the only real cure. Hope all works out.

At the same time, my husband tells me,"Please stop blaming yourself."

Still hoping for the best.

kelly - if one must apologize so profusely - perhaps the other person isn't hearing the base plea?

most things need to be said, how we say them on the other hand, is the measure by which they gauge us.

don't you worry your purty self over this.

May I go off topic? You have a guy there in Utah that is a hero now, and I am talking about Ken Hammond. Off-Duty cop who had the wherewithal to have his service revolver and a wheelbarrow worth of huevos handy when that Bosnian loser let loose with a shoulder cannon in a mall. Now...on to "Politicians Say the Silliest Things":


“Thank goodness he was there,” said Greiner, who is also a state senator. “You don’t want to ever say it’s good we were there and killed somebody, but it’s probably good someone was there.”

Probably good? Probably? The guy is a hero and the Police Chief and Senator says "well, perhaps it is good somebody just happened to be there..."

Wow, is the best response I can come up

I had been contemplating a blog entry on the subject. You just gave me my lead in.

For the update:

I am going to let this person "friend" go.

I would go into the reasons...its just too long and I don't want to.

Thanks for all your concern...everyone.
