Still Thinking…

“Never judge someone’s character based on the words of another. Instead, study the motives behind the words of the person casting the bad judgment. An honest woman can sell tangerines all day and remain a good person until she dies, but there will always be naysayers who will try to convince you otherwise. Perhaps this woman did not give them something for free, or at a discount. Perhaps too, that she refused to stand with them when they were wrong — or just stood up for something she felt was right. And also, it could be that some bitter women are envious of her, or that she rejected the advances of some very proud men. Always trust your heart. If the Creator stood before a million men with the light of a million lamps, only a few would truly see him because truth is already alive in their hearts. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them. He who does not have Truth in his heart, will always be blind to her.”

  2. Hi Laney! I’ve been catching your blog here from time to time as well as reading your stellar reviews on Eccie. Today is the day we are scheduled to meet. This blog is one reason I am making the trip over. You can learn a great deal from someone’s writing. Your honesty, and sensual nature are as much the reason for the appointment as the showcase and reviews! I am very excited to finally meet you and looking forward to a blog worthy episode.
