I have recently been faced with a situation that has caused a strain on the relationship between a family member and myself. We have come to a disagreement on certain isuues, and this person has chosen not to remain in contact with me. People sometimes choose to live their lives in ways that are destructive to themselves and others. We really can never understand what is going on in someones heart and soul. We can never fully understand the torment that they may suffer deep inside. What I have chosen to do is to keep my arms outstretched for this person. I will continue to stay in contact with this person as much as they will allow. All of my friends and family continue to keep me and this situation in your prayers.
