Quote of the Week

"The chief drawback to bitterness is that the feast you are wolfing down is yourself." ~Frederick Buechner

I really love this quote because I have some things in my life I just cant seem to get over, and I sometimes find myself sinking into the deeper parts of my anger or bitterness and enjoying a little feast of "whys?" and "shouldnt haves." When I heard this quote it really spoke to me about once again learning to let go.

That's really good. I can tend to struggle with that too. My brother talked in a sermon this weekend about not being offended... he talked about how getting offended and bitter is bait laid out by the devil. He went on much more than that. But i know I'm praying through a lot of that stuff.
