Kody....

ok, something happened that kinda made me a bit upset, but the more i thought about it, the upsetness(yes i just made up a word) turned to sadness. i was talkin with some classmates about this guy i know named kody. i said that he should come to fiath with all of us, and someone else asked the question "who are you talking about?" we told her (even though she had been evesdroping)and she immediatly said "oh he wouldn't make it here." i said "what do you mean" she said "well, i know him and he would just hate it here and would get in trouble and wouldn't be good here." realizing that i would get mad if i said anything, i simply went back to work and thought about what to say. a few minutes later, i asked her how she knew him. her answer (and this is where i almost lost it completely) was "i went ot drivers ed with him." oh, so that means you really know what he is like and everything about him and how he acts. WRONG! i understand that he might not have seemed like a perfect christian, but that was like 2-3 years ago. so what if you "knew" him then? (which you didn't)i was somewhat amazed that this girl seemed to have no faith in the kid that he would turn his life around. when i told her that he has changed quite a bit, she made some snide remark along the lines of "well, i've seen him since then and he hasn't changed." at this point, i could've done many things, but i simply turned away and kept my comments to myself. i know people can get set in ther ways, but to have that apparent lack of fiath in God's power to change an individual was appalling. He's changed me quite a bit, and i know other people that God has changed. it was sad to see the way she responded to that situation. i wish i would've known what to say....

isn't it sad how some people form opinions with out ever talking to a person? there is so much more to someone then what we see in a drivers ed course. maybe there isn't anything to say without causing more problems...i should remember that sometimes :( ~

i have no idea, but that is sad. Too often i myself dismiss someone as a 'hopeless case'. Who am I? I too was and still am a hopeless case. COntinually i'm proven wrong, when someone turns their life around.
I'm proud of you for being so patient.

Joe, who seriously writes a blog about this? Why don't you talk to that person about it, instead of making a huge deal about this 5 second conversation of your 24 hour day? Why did I just read this? I just wasted 2 minutes of my 24 hour day. Holla', oh, and please don't be mad at me too, hahaha

I totally agree with will...i understand your point, but everyone knows who you're talking about, so maybe you should've talked to her before you posted this...

like that would have done any good. i have resigned myself to the fact that some people will not see beyond their own noses becuase they aren't willing to.

btw, how do you know who i'm talking about? i didn't give any names, i didn't mention which class i was in or where it was. what makes you so sure you know?

so then who was i talking about?

anonymous - do you really think that person would've listened to me. i don't. but i also know that i wouldn't listen to her either. for various reasons. part of the reason for my "loudness" (which i wasn't - you just were evesdropping, like her) is becuase i was mad. if i would've said any more, i would've ended up saying too much. back off. and if you are who i think you are, i'm pretty sure i won't listen to you either.

wilbo, no hard feelings here either.
