Eating Crow

Eating crow, well, plain and simple it's just NOT fun! It can be very hard to choke down, and often times it feels as though it's completely impossible to digest!

It seems as of late I have had several meals of crow. You know I'm thinking I should have learned long ago to not say "never"....well, I guess I didn't learn! I haven't had to partake of the whole crow, more like a nibble here and a nibble there, either way it's not tasty! My pallet and stomach are screaming.....
"I hope you have learned your lesson now,
 please don't subject us to any more crow!"

Over the course of the past year, we have encountered many changes....
With the change of life seasons, I began to see that one can't live a life of
"I'll Never" !
I boxed myself in by using those words,
which in the end gave me crow to eat~ Yuck!

Where am I today after the crow feast?
I'm grateful for the humbling crow eating experience,
however uncomfortable it was....
I'm different today and I'm happy to be free from the bondage that
"I'll never" placed me in.

Haha. This made me laugh because God hugs taught me the same thing. Love your honesty!

I always feel a check in my spirit when I say the words 'always' or 'never'. It's humbling when the Lord teaches us his valuable lessons.

Crow does NOT taste good and it seems to be that word "never" that goes with it! Praise God He is so gracious to us.

I thought I had commented it must not have gone through. Crow is often hard to swallow. Sometimes I am such a slow learner. So glad that God is soooo very patient with us. :)
