The Prodigal Post

Yes, I promised a long and introspective post.

Well, to be frank and honest with you, as I started working my way through it, the post got just a wee bit too personal to "put out there" for public consumption. If you can find it in your hearts to forgive me for not following through on the promised post, I'd appreciate it.

I'll leave you with this...

I am frustrated by (and having to deal with) - Luke 15: 13-15
I am hoping (but not holding my breath) for - Luke 15: 17-21

'Nuff said.


  1. A little soul-baring can be cathartic.

    I'm not sure which "son" you are here, but I'm assuming it's the prodigal one. Hope things work out the way you want/like.

    Everyone's entitled to one or two mistakes in life; it's just a matter of who your mistake affects, and how bad it was that makes the difference.

    If it makes you feel any better, my brother and I share a similarity in this regard to your situation. I'm the one that stayed home and he's the spend-thrift. Seems like he was always getting a helping hand while I made my own way. It's tough to sit back and watch it happen, knowing you've been steady all along.

    I say that so that if A)You're the "steady son," that you feel some comraderie or that B)If you're the prodigal son, you see things from the other side.

    I'll say a quick prayer for you either way.

  2. No, I fall under the "Father" portion of that story...

    I have a slightly "way-ward" one, that I dont know what to do about execpt to watch him hit rock bottom...

    It's sort of a "Father & Son" time for us... As in "Father & Son" by Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam) - only less "honorable" and more about "bad choices"
