Below I have catalogued a few conversations that I have had with my family and friends since going public about my faith. With as much pain that it brings me to remember these, I allow their viewing only becuase I believe that God can use them to touch people.
I pray that if anyone I have talked with here ever reads these in the future, their eyese will be opened to how they are really acting. Perhaps the strengh of the shock will not be as great to those who don't know personally me or the people in these conversations, how our relationships used to be compared with what they have dramatically changed to become. The fact that they are even shown here indicates the amount of disbelief I have that they even occured. If I thought that this behavior were normal, there would be no reason to display them in the first place.
I am not happy with everything I have said either. None of us are perfect. And I regret many things. But that's the point: And I CAN admit that, and say my apologies. But when somebody who knew you like a sister, daughter, cousin, or close friend can change forever and turn their back on you with no regrets, that is sad. Some of these conversations reflect that change.
