I guess I can now be considered "new" to The Shack, not having been around for quite awhile, but God compelled me to return, so I'm looking forward what He has for me here. I am learning to live loved by Him as a result of His indescribable grace.

Welcome back, Constance ... or did you prefer Connie?  I'm trying to remember the handle (username) you registered under, but I'm drawing a blank. I'm looking forward to your involvement and input. :)

Thanx for the welcome, Adam. Itís a quote I got from somewhere (I donít recall the source) that stuck a cord with me. What it means to me is that everyone, even those with the indwelling Life of Christ, have something (or some things) with which they struggle - circumstances that can sometimes cause them to focus on the flesh and be distracted from the truth of who they are in Christ. Then there are those who have little or no knowledge of what Christ has already done for them at the cross. Kindness to others is a way of demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit in and through us. Most people appreciate kindness, and even those who donít - or say they donít - that wouldnít stop God's lovingkindness toward them. It could possibly be the only Light in someoneís day.

Thank you, Jim. Either name is fine with me. I, too, am looking forward to participating and learning from you and others.
