Thank you for your comment on my blog! I think brutal honesty is a great goal for 2017 -- or any time, really. That brutal honesty can go both ways, too, in the sense that sometimes we're undeservedly hard on ourselves. So, in your quest to call BS BS... I hope you always remember to be compassionate and gentle with yourself, too!
God is so funny! I am with ABWE, a Baptist mission board based in PA but with missionaries from all over. I work in The Gambia, West Africa and have been there most of the last 22 years. Right now I'm on medical leave trying to lose weight and regain strength. I've had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 9 years and the mission doctor thought I needed some time to really focus on trying to get healthier. He was right even though I didn't want to admit it. My goal is to get clearance to return in October, but we'll see. I have 14 more pounds to lose before he will let me go. I still need to lose a bunch after that too, but at least I'll be able to go back. 514 days ago
