today was not an up day
it was a bit of hard slugging
struggling with an old issue
of ill-spoken and unfair words directed at me
really rather unpleasant
the image i have of how it makes me feels is
i have a burr buried deep in my fur
i try repeatedly to get it out, but can't quite
in fact the effort of trying makes it harder
then i ignore it and forget it is there
until the time that i move the wrong way
and the pain goes shooting through me
sometimes it even makes me bleed
the truth though is that God says
"I have chosen you and not cast you away" Isaish 41:9
"I have loved you with an everlasting love" Jeremiah 31:3

Prayers that the person who spoke those words is convicted of the need to apologize and make things right. Give grace you will feel amazing!!

Sending you prayers and hugs, this too shall come to pass.
