Bringing the constantly fantastic and painfully insane together daily!

I hope you read this.

Today I got the most amazing comment on my blog, through my 43things account. I moved it to the post it was in reference to which was the post from earlier today – Lost and found… – and it really, well here it is in slightly edited form (with my response built in.)

For some reason WordPress wouldn’t let me comment on your blog…so I’ve pasted below what I tried to comment there. I know it’s not exactly the correct place but it’s the only place I could tell you what I wanted to say…here goes! Not the right place? Heck any place is the right place for comments like these – THANK YOU for taking the time to make sure I got it!!!
Hi there! I have read your blog since Little FAT Me and I love it! Wow, I know a couple of you have been with me for a while, but hearing it is completely amazing! I think you are simply amazing thank you and sometimes when you write I feel like you took the words right out of my mouth. This post is particularly touching to me as I seem to be creating this huge space between God and I. At first it was unintentional but now it seems like I almost decide to create the space. I understand this, almost like “I’ve done so much damage how could I set it right?” So instead I just continued to turn away or seek other ways to assure myself. Reading this made me realize that I can blame it on whatever I want but in the end it is me. God doesn’t change…He doesn’t create distance. I do. I’m so glad He loves us unconditionally. Right?! How awesomely lucky are we?  Time to start bridging that gap. Thank you! Thank you for posting this and for your blog in general…I always gain something from it! That is so killer to have someone say. I have recently started a blog…please drop in and check it out… Musings of a Workout Whore. Keep on writing girl! I will! You never know who you are helping. Not unless they go out of their way to let me know. ;) Today you put salve on the hole in my heart…let the healing begin! 🙂 Amen!

So, I will usually not put interactions on “blast” if you will but seeing as this was left in a public arena I thought it would be okay. If you want me to take it down or remove the blog address please let me know. Now – what I wanted to say: this brought tears to my eyes and an ache to my heart. Thank you so much. You know, as a person my goal is to constantly evolve and learn and seek more. I want to walk the path that God intended for me, and it seems like a bit of guess work at some points, like this feels right but how will I know. When comments like that get posted – I know. That is the most cherished gift. 🙂 Again, thank you.
