It was bound to change and in the last 48 hours, we have discovered what many blog writers have already faced on their blogs. Unkind remarks, accusations and threats. It caught us off guard. It hurts. It feels like a kick in the gut. We find it interesting that after 10 months of writing - we have been hit by not one but several really nasty comments - all in the last few days. Being threatened is a bit shocking. I'll be honest, it makes us want to cut and run. Neither of us like controversy. We tend to avoid conflict like the plague. But God opened our eyes a few months ago and we cannot stop advocating for those who don't have a voice. So, though we feel a bit battered, we will continue to post, advocate and encourage. We will continue to prayerfully consider every word we write so that it is uplifting, encouraging and God-honoring. And we will continue to stand for what we believe is right.
I Corinthians 15:58 - "Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."
