Getting Ripe

When my wife and I had left organized religion, I have to admit that I was a very bitter person. My middle child came out among those that I knew and my desire to please everyone kept a smile on my face when their was only anger in my heart. I had become bitter and restless, not knowing what God had wanted of me, just what he didn't.

I just was thinking of how fruit ripens......what it tastes like in the early stages.....that it has to go through those stages......before it gets just right. I don't know if I am just right yet but I am happy to say that the bitterness is going away slowly but surely. I know in my heart that the day will come that I will be "Just Right" but I can take comfort that it wasn't wrong for me to be bitter and angry, it was NEEDED!


  1. Right on, Adam!! Love the analogy! I believe you can be too ripe, if ya know what I mean. To spoil the ones you love or suffocate them and not give them time for themselves then that isn't love at all, naw mean?
