We suffered devastating emotions as our church went through a “split” back in 1984-85. In many ways this experience has defined our life.  This was jotted down on 7-18-85.

How long must I endure this place–

Memories of sadness, bitter tastes,

Polite dismissals, fading smiles,

Pains in my heart from numerous trials.

Must one lie in the bed one has made?

Or in some cases can one make a trade?

I ache to start out afresh, it’s true,

To learn from the old, begin the new.
