Reflection on my Previous Life

I got out in 2016

I still cry every day. 

I let everyone down in my previous life: my church, my friends, my family, and my kids.

All I can say is I gave you everything I had.

I’m grateful for my new life, and I’m trying not to waste it.

But I still love you.

  1. Dear David:

    I know you don’t want to hear this, but I must say this to you. The person that you let down was Jesus. He gave His life for you so that you could live forever in His eternal kingdom of love, peace and joy.

    Jesus still loves you and He is still waiting for you to come back. I love you to David as my brother. Don’t miss eternity with Him.

  2. I think there is something there….
    I’ve been lucky to read Whitehead’s ‘Process & Reality’ in a small online reading group (Cobb Institute) this Fall, and he talks about all the past universe being tied up in each moment of our lives…. If there was a Jesus, a good Jesus, that thread may be strong, and resonating with you in spite of the atrocious ways we’ve spoken about it in the millennia since.
    It’s not you who’ve let others down, it’s the distortions that have harmed so many… May this new year be one when the good grows stronger.
    Thank you for not only your sensitivity and eloquence — but for never giving up the good
