“I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am.” John Newton
As fall leaves change into winter which transforms into spring and summer, I think of the ways we change, hopefully leaving old hurts and harms behind, and becoming more loving and forgiving. We are only stuck if we choose to be.
