Glad to finally be back ‘home’… went to Long Branch Baptist Church to see how the teaching is for a Wednesday Night, there… our driver was shorter man who surprised me that he could even see the road. By God’s grace we made it back safely. Before boarding to ride to church, I had an opportunity to call my dad and find out whether he could make it up to visit Saturday with my mom and bros.(‘Family Communication’).. It finally looks like they may be able to. he said they were working really hard towards it,so I’m pretty glad… I’ve been told not to expect anything, to just be honest and love my parents and trust God. So, I’m not expecting anything… I’m anxious…not expecting anything… but preparing myself for them possibly not arriving… which, I hope is the only bad scenario. I hope to look back in about 3 years and think to myself that this was excellent decision, and that it has been a critical tool in getting our relationship on track. I’m tired of our family living in dissension… I’m tired of living a life of half-truths, I want to live together in peace… not an imagined peace either… and I want to be able to disagree and still be in unity… it has never been that way…hopefully after this weekend we will be communicating somewhat better.
