"Forgiving and being reconciled to our enemies or our loved ones is not about pretending that things are other than they are. It is not about patting one another on the back and turning a blind eye to the wrong. True reconciliation exposes the awfulness, the abuse, the hurt, the truth. It could even sometimes make things worse. It is a risky undertaking but in the end it is worthwhile, because in the end only an honest confrontation with reality can bring real healing. Superficial reconciliation can bring only superficial healing."

Bishop Desmond Tutu

Reconciliation is one of life's true difficult undertakings. It requires self examination and a willingness to expose yourself to attack. It is always an adventure and a hopeful step closer to God.

Thank you for the chance to hop along for the ride, Dear. See you soon, but not soon enough.
