Lifting the Veil of Rejection Part 2

My husband’s grandmother, Mema, has filled several china cabinets with antique glassware. One cabinet in particular contains milk glass, which was very popular in the 1950’s and 60’s. Some of Mema’s collection always belonged to her, while other pieces she acquired at various sales. Some of the bowls, pitchers, and creamers in Mema’s cabinet are valued at more than $250.00, yet she never paid that amount of money for any of them. In fact, she bought several items for a few dollars each at local yard sales.

This was a great post for me to read this morning. Especailly because I was praying that God would show me who I am in Him. I have felt really rejected and worthless for the past few weeks. There are days where it is easier to cope. Then there are days like today where I wonder how I am going to make it through the day. Thanks for sharing this today!

Anne Elizabeth -

I saw your comment to this article and for some time now, I too, have felt worthless and rejected - I know where you're coming from. It's actually one of my reasons to start my blog.

I appreciate your willingness to share -

I also needed this article as well -

Blessings,

Seeing oursleves how God sees us would change our lives I believe. I am striving for that very thing. Again, thankful for your writing as such an encouragement on the journey. :)

I loved this and left a comment over there as well. I remember when I figured out that I sold a Lladro piece of collectible glass at a garage sale for $1. Someone probably knew I had a screw or two loose!!

Rejection is NEVER easy...but thank Goodness there are a set of loving GRACE-FILLED hands there to catch us when we fall.

That really touched my heart. That was so beautiful.

It is so sad to see what some children have to go through, I have spent time in a children's hospital as well. Josh has shared rooms with kids whose parents don't even come to visit them:( So many kids never had a father look at them and say, "I love you" or "I am proud of you" . It is so important to me to talk to children about the Lord, especially ones that come from broken homes. So they can see that they have a Father that will always love them . . . no matter what.

"We love because he first loved us."
1 John 4:19
