    I only knew ten of these–I’d better get out the dictionary and start reading if I am to keep up with your wonder words. πŸ™‚
    I am so glad you are back.

    Peace and prayers
    Neva

    I’m amazed that you knew 10!

  3. Neva Cooper says:

    I forgot to guess–I think you are reading Crime and Punishment by Dosetovsky (not sure if I spelled the name correctly)–

    Peace

    You got it, Neva! Give yourself a pat on the back!!

    Great point about forgivenss! Though we are all sinners, we can have a great impact on those closest to us( like family). When they can see the change that happens, it becomes real. But most important is not to keep the forgivness hidden from others. Being transparent about the failures in our lives can help guide and encourage those who are stumbling or just need hope to see that Christ’s mercy is not just for you.

    Keep the Faith!
