"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us..." (Hebrews 12:1)

This morning I woke up excited about my appointment. I knew I would be welcomed with open arms because I knew they missed me standing in their presence. I must admit, I missed it too. But, I wondered how I would be received…..after all it’s been a few months since I allowed myself to be transparent before them. The mere thought of that made me nervous. Then I remembered the last time we visited. I thought to myself “I hope I’m not treated the way I was treated the last time I visited because I didn’t deserve the reception I received.”
