    Big Time!

    I'm not going to go into great detail about my big mistake. But I will say this. More often than not, I'm trying to owe up to what I did and earn forgiveness.

    Be Careful What You Wish For.

    I asked God to send me someone to love.   And he said yes.   This was possibly the worst mistake of my life. But I learned a valuable lesson: Never wish, lest you get what you ask for.
