Chip, I really haven't felt the Holy Spirit in a while (years). Was trying to decide what to say and started thinking about a funeral that I attended this last Summer.

My best friends Dad died @ 92. I spent a lot of time at their house growing up. My Mom would call over and ask if I was ever coming home. The truth was I didn't want to go home. They were a Christian family who prayed and thanked God for every meal. Never missed church.

About 15 years ago I found myself in a situation where I had no home. Going through a divorce I was ordered out of the house. They took me in and I lived with them for about one year. During this period of time I was saved.

At the funeral a guy (Bill) my age stood up. He said that when he was young he had stolen money from their house while they were on vacation. He said that he had been caught and had to return the money. He had to apologize and he had lived with this regret. The family had forgiven him and treated him as if it had never happened.

I wondered if I could ever make such a public confession. After the funeral I caught Bill in the parking lot and thanked him for his honesty. He told me that they had never brought it up again and treated him like he was their son.

I got a message from my friend about a month ago that Bill had passed away. 50 years old and died from an enlarged heart. He didn't even know he was sick, just died in his sleep.

I'm not sure why I was suppose to share that with you but hopefully it means something. To me it means that they were a loving God fearing family that forgave. From what you've shared about your childhood it sounds like you grew up with the opposite. The key to my salvation was forgiveness. I had a lot of forgiving to do. The hardest person to forgive was myself.
