Bible Note Quote: "Here I am, like Moses, but much less worthy, on the "backside of the dessert" as it were, and while peering across the apparently barren landscape of my life there is a burning bush that captures my attention and my heart. The fire of the bush corresponds with the fire in my heart and I cannot help but follow... The fire still burns!"
quote from The Fire of God's Word Still Burns! ~ ~ (see former quotes here: Bible Note Quote Archives)

Honestly Facing Human Frailties

Oh the freedom of honestly facing one's human frailties!

To understand my musings here, it might help if I told you that I was reared to be a perfectionist. If I did not perform perfectly, I expected to be in trouble...

I cried recently. I was feeling defensive, but took the more humble route of self-deprecation. Then, my superior reached down to lift me up instead of beating me while I was down!

What I noticed immediately thereafter was a sense of freedom from false guilt and useless self-castigation. All the facts of my mistake(s) were still true, but my attitude about it changed for the better. Yes, I was still responsible, but now I could live with it and move forward.

Do not tell me a man should not cry! That was part of the process of coping and recovering from what could have been a mountain of trouble on the job. Instead, it became more of a "bump in the road" on the journey towards greater maturity.
