This is a great post. A hard one to swallow though, too. After seeing my parents have a difficult relationship with each set of their in-laws, I prayed and dreamed mine would be different. But once we got married, something totally went off in me in the wrong direction: a generational pattern of how I was relating to my hubby's parents was set in motion and spiraled downward. It is a constant battle for me, but one that I recognize is a huge battle of the flesh in how I choose to respond. One of the things that has helped me change the most has been my son (1 year old) and the truth that I will reap what I sow. The thought of my dil responding to me the way I act towards my in-laws would be devastating. So by the Lord's help and grace, He is changing a generational pattern and my sin of selfishly thinking that my relationship to my in-laws is all about me.
{breathing a sign of relief} to read your bolded main point! And if you wanna try a new fabulous chocolate recipe, try the Molten Lava Cakes by Brandielle that PW has recently posted about...oh, they are divine!

I think you hit home on this post for a lot of us gals, myself most definitely included! The Lord's helped me a lot with my perfection throughout the past 10 years, and I think the grace my hubby shows me has been vital. I think comparison feeds it as I see other people who do things I'd like to do, and then I measure myself by what I see them doing in some of the following areas: cooking, writing, being fit, speaking. But this is the year, I know this is the time that the Lord will help me find my significance in Him and handing Him my fear of failure! :)

Thanks for the new scenes! Might I suggest adding some more though for those who really like variety? I used to be a Vox user and they have some awesome scenes, and a lot more choices even for autumn scenes. Any way to start integrating more of the vox scenes?
