The first thing that enters my mind is “don’t tell.” The second is “go tell it on the mountain.”

Quite the paradox.

Tell me a story. Something real and honest. I yearn for honesty these days. I can handle truth. Secrets… sparing feelings… these have always been epic ways to fail with me.

I strive for integrity. We can handle anything together, I believe, but first you must raise a light and look at whatever it is and tell me what it is.

I think that is why my current situation with my husband is so disheartening. There were secrets. There are secrets.

Tell me truths and you will show me love. And this is how I feel we failed Divine in our marriage in that “third leg” of the marriage stool. How can you attend Sunday each Sunday and take those words in with me and yet continue to not honor truth which is to me the Word of God?

For October, I’m writing in conjunction with 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes and each post is written in five minutes flat.
