Thankful Thursday

"Truth allows you to live with integrity. Everything you do and say shows the world who you really are. Let it be the Truth."  Oprah Winfrey's hard to swallow and sometimes it doesn't feel as good as its distortion.

A man in leadership position in a church told me his story. It was sensational....incredible..... unbelievable. But I listened and accepted what he said. So did many others. And then I found out the truth.

I met a man who grew up with 'this church man.' He told me what really happened. He told me the truth. His version made more sense and filled in the holes of  the other man's story. trumps lies every time. always shines Light in dark corners.
This week thankful for........

-connection to that man who told me the truth. He has nothing to gain from distorting the truth whereas the other man has a lot to lose....mostly fame and money.
-my dgt is finally over the worse from having her wisdom teeth pulled. Hardest thing for a see their kid in pain.
-a local university is displaying my book, Dancing Softly for sale in their store. 
-went to a party last night. Met a women who read both my books. She told me she wants to promote and sell them for me. She's a psychotherapist and works in health care. 
-Mostly that He has a plan for all our lives. When I think of where I was and where I am now....I'm humbled. He truly is for real. He truly is absolute truth.

The truth will set you free! One thing my father always instilled in me was to always tell the truth which I passed on to my kids. Sometimes the truth hurts but you feel better for it.
As a parent I know how it hurts to see your child in pain. My oldest son is in surgery right now as I write this, undergoing ear surgery. It is a risky operation but we're trusting God has His hand on him and my boy will recover with no major damage.
Almost through your book. Have a lovely day, Nikki. Keep shining!

Very nice post on truth, Nikki. I hope your daughter heals quickly. I've been through that, and it is no fun. That is good news about your books. I hope she will be able to find many who are interested in your book.

I'm so happy such wonderful things are happening to you! These things that happen to us, getting disillusioned, we should not let them make us cynical, but I know it is hard.
