I Have a Confession to Make….


I have a confession to make…

Sometimes my smile doesn’t always convey happiness. It doesn’t come across my face naturally. I, sometimes, force myself to smile in spite of the feelings inside. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I don’t always like what I see looking back at me. I don’t always feel comfortable in my own skin. Sometimes the mirror isn’t my friend. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

Sometimes I don’t want to “go to church.” Sometimes I just want to stay home…sleep in…Sometimes it seems easier not to go. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

Sometimes I forget to pray. Sometimes I remember to pray and don’t.  And there are other times when I pray and doubt. Yes, I doubt. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

Sometimes I am capable of doing so much more…and I don’t. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

Sometimes, even though I am blessed way beyond what I could ever want or need, I want more. I want the greener grass on the other side. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

Sometimes, even though I feel I am the most honest person I know, I am not always honest with myself. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

God is, always has been and always will be…the most important person in my life…but sometimes, I don’t always keep Him as #1 or in the center of my life. Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

Sometimes I lie. Sometimes when asked, “How are you doing?” I will say “fine” when I’m not! Sometimes…

I have a confession to make…

I have never thought of myself as a person of judgement. Always open-minded and fair to others…but sometimes…when I am in an unfamiliar crowd in an unfamiliar environment…sometimes I feel nervous, suspicious and doubt those around me with no real cause. Sometimes….

I have a confession to make…

I am human. I make mistakes. Lots of mistakes. Sometimes I learn from my mistakes while other times, I don’t. I have so many more confessions that are buried within.

I have a confession to make…

I am a Christian…A Christian with flaws. God sees me and knows me. He understands me. He loves me.  He forgives me. His love and grace covers me completely. I am thankful. I am blessed. This is the ultimate confession.

  1. Laura, this is such an honest post- and one I’m sure many of us are thinking, just unable to put into words. Glad that you commented on my post so that I could look at yours!

  2. This was beautiful. Something we all feel and do daily. I do write but I am leaving my thoughts and life journey to my son’s. Not very proud of some of it but it is life. Being a woman, marriage, having children and trying to work in a full time job. Throw in military life and those hard years. I think we all could really write a book. The hardiest for me was losing my soul mate at 49 year’s old and starting over. Was so angry for a long time he had left me. We had so many plan’s for our retirement. Thirty year’s with someone and they r gone in a blink of an eye was so shocking and heart breaking. If people do not have God in their life when this happens not sure how u get through it. Now the Lord has brought someone new into my life. A great guy so very blessed. I am so glad I listen to his voice (God) telling me to sit still he had a plan.. Four and a half years later I am so happy and plan to be married soon.

    • Thanks Cheryl. I appreciate your heartfelt thoughts and comments. The older I get, the more I think about what I would do if my husband would leave this life before me. I have faith God would get me through it but I know it would be so difficult. We just celebrated our 30th anniversary in March. We are really enjoying life together as a couple, parents and now grandparents. You are so right…things can change in the blink of an eye. I am so happy God has led another special person to you. Best wishes with your wedding and new life to come. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and follow my blog.
