I have no words.
I thought my heart would be heavier, but there is overwhelming peace.
When you do the right thing, when you ask someone to tell the truth
and he refuses,
he says, "It's not my job."
his character is revealed.
When is it not our job to tell the truth?
When is it not our duty - no, our honor, to defend our children?
So boundaries are reiterated.
Boundaries are not bitterness.
Boundaries are not unforgiveness.
Boundaries are wisdom.
My heart is valuable and precious and vulnerable.
My childrens' hearts are valuable and precious and vulnerable.
I thought things had changed.
Three years of me rebuilding relationships and trust
because of pride and lies.
A mess that didn't have to be.
But character is who you are in the dark.
And eventually light shines in the darkness.
You are given the choice - do the right thing.
Tell the truth. The truth will set you free.
But instead lies poured out.
To cover up other lies, old and new.
Second verse same as the first.
I will not live in the bondage of lies.
I will not put my children at unnecessary risk.
I will walk in truth. I will walk in peace. I will walk with hope. I will walk with integrity.
