  1. There is so much hope, even for the most bitter. A true sign of knowing Christ is to not allow that root of bitterness to grow, but to let God’s light shine in our hearts and grow His peace and love. Thank you for this beautiful and hopeful post, Cecilia. Blessings to you this weekend!

    • Thank you Patty. Our family has a bitter root and I wrote this a month or so ago during a very dark day after a particularly nasty verbal attack. There had been so many, and (with no pride) I can say I have fallen into the guilty category myself. But God…, He is so merciful and His gentle voice will bring us back…, if we listen. My daily goal is to be obedient to His call: to be a woman of integrity. I pray I can stand strong in His Power!
