Finals and 100

In honor of this being the 100th post on The Town Scribe this year, I decided to dedicate it to finals week! All of my classes are online, so this will be my last week of work for the quarter... and then... I'm off to Australia!

And that is when I realized how so foolishly I had been holding on to bitter disappointments and keeping them buried deep in my heart- refusing to forgive and instead foster a deeper and more meaningful relationship with them. I realized that it is all of the little things I refuse to let go of: all of the memories of shortcomings and mistakes- that is what keeps me from loving with a Christ like love. Am I so perfect that I am not in need of such grace from others? Absolutely not! I struggled with this thought for a while and would not stop seeing my grievances as legiti…
