    This is true. There is so much I struggle to let go of and I don’t mean material things.

  3. I just finished a study of Ephesians 1: 1-14, where Paul is talking about all the benefits of a relationship with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Nothing material is mentioned.

    Yeah. It’s amazing the grudges I’m still holding. The anger is real and potent, and I wonder where it’s coming from and how it sustains itself. Worth looking into, I think, lol! Jeez! 🙂

    I wasn’t sure where I should reply but this seemed like a good spot. I was finally able to sit down and watch a movie Sunday night. That doesn’t happen often, but I’m trying to be more proficient at taking a Sabbath rest. The movie I wanted to see was Healing River. I want to say thank you. I shed some tears and felt some pretty difficult emotions. I can rarely relate to most folks when it comes to losing a child. It tends to be an exclusive club that no one wants to be a member of. However, Healing River came close to the grief I felt when Jeremy died. I worked hard to let go of my resentment toward the person I know gave him the drugs that led to his overdose. I can’t honestly say I’ve forgiven them, but I am somewhere in that process. Your film moved me farther in that process. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to see it.

    Clinging to the Lord makes everything else pale. It’s going to burn. How is the next movie coming?
