maybe i am just sad right now. knowing the days and months and even years that passed. as i looked at it, i can't help but cry. all the failures and the struggles and the mistakes i did and the sins i made. it made me ashame though. it wasn't easy to be here and be living in this planet with this sinful nature body we had. as for me, to live each day and even surpass the misunderstandings each day, the struggles each day and the trials and temptations each day is more than enough for me to thank the Lord. and as it is Christmas season, i just want to have a merry little christmas.. merry in a sense that there are lots of reasons to celebrate the season. the saving Grace of the Lord through His SOn and the Christmas is to be celebrated with joy and gladness in our hearts. though the failings and the struggles.. hmmm ..life

Hi! Don't be sad. You need to make mistakes in life. If you never make mistakes , you never learn. Without learning, you cannot help or understand others. Let's face it, nobody's perfect. If that were the case , Jesus would not have needed to go on the cross for our sins. He has forgiven you, know it is your turn to forgive yourself. Merry Christmas.
