I am like you about these inspirational quote picture, posters, etc., but I agree with you about this one. Excellent quote!
I am with you on having a problem with the past. I keep wondering how God could let so many horrible things happen to me, if I am indeed his child. This is that same discussion we've been having in your "faith vs. feeling" thread.
I hope eventually we'll look back at all that stuff too, and see that His hand was in it as well, although I just don't get it right now. Where is a loving and merciful God, when a boy is being sodomized and more?
"The sexual abuse and exploitation of children is one of the most vicious crimes conceivable, a violation of mankind's most basic duty to protect the innocent." ~James T. Walsh
