I have spent most of my life, trying to live up to the expectations of various people, trying to be what they wanted/needed or expected me to be, and of course, always failing miserably!  Now, at almost 60 years of age - I have at last realised that the only answer is to simply 'be'.  To be the best I can be, being 'me' - and if other people have a problem with that, then it is their problem, not mine.


Josephine, welcome to the forum! That's a wonderful lesson you've learned. It's something I need to keep learning.

Shelly, well done on your exams!

Love, workofgrace

I'm glad to hear things are going well for you, Shelly.

My husband and I went on a lovely holiday to Walhalla in Victoria this week.

I've had the Shack since Christmas time, just didn't tear myself away from the silly 'puter to read real books. Well, I started and was shocked at the beginning. I was in the middle of an IV iron treatment(long story...boring) and captive, so I buckled down and kept reading. The tears flowed and still I kept on, then I met Papa! Each one, Papa, Jesus, and Sarayu are visions of what I already knew. My husband and I were pulled out of our organized church by Papa, although we didn't know why at the time. We struggled, looked for a new church, one that was outward facing, wanting to work with the people that NEEDED a church family. No one wanted us...they all wanted to fix us, and it was plain Dad was up to something!

Then we fell on unconditional reconciliation. Or my husband did. he told me about this life changing way of seeing things and I was really taken aback! It took awhile but I began to see where Bruce was coming from, and the truth made it's way into my own heart. I will not say I understand it all, there are too many questions and not enough answers, so many that Jesus will have to answer himself. But he and The spirit together are helping me on this journey and The Shack brings me such comfort. It shows me ideas in hard print, something to wrap my head around. I'm learning how to ask the questions and of whom, and even which ones aren't worth my time to ask!
I love the book, it will be one I cannot part with, and must re-read many times. There are passages in it that speak of Father, Son and Spirit in such a way that my heart lightens, and I fly a bit! THANK YOU!!!

Hi, I started reading The Shack yesterday and finished it today. My name is Marcia, I'm from Brasil. I'm a university teacher in a veterinary school. I live with my mother, who is bipolar. My older brother suicides 17 years ago. I enjoy reading, but I have few time. :angel:
That's it!
