(musings) crazy people.

The brothers live with their very sick father. Mental illness runs deep in the family.

We were told not to invest much time talking to the man who answered the door - told he was "crazy."

He said God had spoken to him in a dream once. Looking at his eyes, I knew he was telling the truth.

God has spoken to me too. I guess I must be crazy. 
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone. -Audrey Hepburn


Everyone deserves to be told about the beauty of grace and mercy. Everyone needs to be shown love. Even crazy people like you and me. We're all People of the Second Chance.

Yes, we crazy people need second chances, don't we? Hello from all the way up in Leander, TX! ;)

Hello and thanks for stopping by!

We need second, and third, and fourth...

And even first. :)

Come visit at my blog today. You can see the awful (truly) thing that I did that requires a second, third, and fourth chance. I screwed up big time on the first one. You're always welcome in my little space. :)
