Good morning, DearHeart.
I wonder about people’s MO sometimes. The “mode of operation”. And, I can get all tangled up in analyzing what might be going on in THEIR tangled up heart to make them deliver all cold and heartless… because, if you can’t deliver your message with love, then you should be questioning why you are taking the time to deliver it at all. God heals. He hears in ways others can’t. He sees deeper and as the apple of His eye, He appreciates you. Take that in the next time you face one who comes to bully you.
