This hit home for me. I feel so misunderstood with my daughter. Just when I think our relationship is on the mend...something happens. I feel I am on a roller coaster and it never stops! Always ups and downs. It is really beginning to take its toll on all of us. Thanks for the encouragement.

Pray for us.

amy, this was a very good post. Sometimes people read what they want to read in our writings, God knows our heart and we can't let things like that keep us from doing what God has laid on our heart. I have personally experienced that with my blog, Recently, I wrote about a subject and I had an email from one of the leaders in our church apologizing if I was speaking about him in my post. (I wasn't) It was a reminder to me that "I just write the stuff..The Holy Spirit convicts". -Blessings, Laurie

i received my moms full lips and a heavy brown when i'm concentrating or contemplating or even worried...lots of folks have come up to me and wanted to know why i'm mad...
yes, it does hurt to be misunderstood...i work to have a smile on my face, but sometimes it still doesn't show up.

if you come up on someone who may look "gruff" or "mad"...know they may be worried or just deep in thought.

i must pray and keep Jesus at the forefront of my thoughts to help fend off my "legacy face" and put on a smile even when i'm contemplating.
thanks for the post.
