Still, I'm not sleeping very well, waking up too often, unsettled in the morning.

What came to me last night was that I've been often very harsh, not understanding, not indulging; although, I have to say, there have been many towards me that way, also. We all empathize so little.

Usually, this lack of understanding is focused on those who care the most and stick out their necks the most: parents, teachers, pastors.

As time goes on, I understand some things and some people better. As I become older and less strong and sharp in comparison to former years, maybe I can become more sympathetic. Well, I hope I can hang on to that, as aging gracefully would be a laudable goal.

I am sorry now for situations in which I have been too blind. Really sorry. In these troubled times, there grows a deep desire for reconciliation.

Just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for the book! It arrived in the mail yesterday, and I am looking forward to reading it.
Also, I don't know what situations you are referring to when you talk about being blind. But it is Christ who restores our sight, and in doing so he forgives our sins. So if you now have sight, look to the cross, look to Jesus, he will not forsake you. He also works all thing for good for those who love him. Rom. 8:28

You are very welcome for the book.

I will take it as a blessing, that I can see some things differently now, though is is no fun coming to this understanding.

In life there arise complicated matters and there are always some regrets.

I have taken it to the Lord, but I feel I need to get back to some people. But often it can be wiser to let sleeping matters lie. Wisdom needed and right opportunities. I do want to apologize for my part in some things, at very least for not understanding the difficulties of others.
