Devotions from Judy’s heart

Who are you?  I am a child of God, Al’s wife, our kid’s mom, a grandma, friend, “nun”, contemplative, etc etc.  When I was together with my childhood friends on Saturday, one of them remarked how nice it was to be able to say whatever we think, and not feel judged or that we have to agree. I’m sure we probably don’t see eye to eye on everything but that is alright. One issue doesn’t define who we are. I notice today, that people can be labeled over one issue. But with my old time friends, they know me through the years and one issue doesn’t define who I am. I think it is important to let others be who they are also, and not label or define them or judge them. It’s important to know the whole person and be accepting.  If we are only with those whom we agree with on everything ( probably impossible), we may not grow balanced but can get off. So let us have big windows through which we view others and receive the whole person …… “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
