...Again, thanks for your informative and even handed post. I must admit that I am guilty of getting frustrated with other Christians who want to make a dividing line between fun and miserable. I know I just made a hard and generalized example here but, I am short of time and want to make my point quickly. In truth, I love having fun and yet, I love to be reverent as well. Soooo many Christians are divided, today... more so than in previous years, I think, with perhaps the possible exception of when I was young and the Catholics and Protestants, here in my area, would call each other names.
When my kids were growing up, I use to tell them something similar to what you said. I would tell them that the world and the devil just love it when we argue... I would tell them that there are plenty of badguys in the world who, if given a chance, would love to hurt us and so, it was soooo important to stick together and to love and be kind to each other.
I am sooo sorry to hear about your daughter and what she has gone through and no doubt, you too. You will all be kept in my heart, thoughts and prayers.
