dear everyone,

I just had an a-ha moment that made me rethink some things about myself. I'll keep the circumstances to myself, but let's just say I saw something in someone else that reminded me of ME and it was not good. So I want to say the following...

To everyone I know that reads my blog and knows me in person, this is for you:

If I have ever hurt you in the least possible way, I am so sorry. I say that with tears in my eyes and a heartfelt sorrow. I hope you will forgive me.

If I have ever spoken in a defensive manner, been sarcastic, uncaring, self-centered, critical, judgemental, hateful or worse, again, I am so sorry. I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Please forgive me if you can.

I want to start 2007 with a clean-slate. I don't want to take the chance that there might be someone out there, hurt and offended at me.

I promise to be kinder, loving, giving and more like Jesus from this moment on. I just want to be transparent. He is changing my heart in ways that I never thought possible. I'm so thankful.

Thank you for listening. I hope that all is well with you tonight.

God bless you.
Tracie

I love your sweet spirit...I know that when we are willing to be transparent -- that it just makes Jesus smile. He has a huge smile on His face right now. Thanks for being an inspiration to me...I want to work on these same things this year....
