To whom it may concern: a letter to you; Jan. 2013

To whom it may concern,

This is for you. You may be my mother, myself, a former, future or potential employer. We may have overlapped paths for a week; you may have been hurt when I returned but couldn’t visit because I wasn’t subject to my own agenda. I really am sorry- I should have explained that beforehand. You may have been an answer to prayer- a refreshing surprise- an escort when I really shouldn’t have been alone.

You may just be bored or curious or lonely or procrastinating. It’s ok, go ahead and do what you need to do, I’ll be here regardless of whether you make it back.

You may be of the mindset that “A good day for a bad boy is talking a good girl into a bad decision” but I want to tell you that today is a good day because God made it and He loves you regardless of the story behind that post.

You may not be interested, but still, this is for you.

Sarah, this is a response to your honesty and a hearty AMEN to your assertion that none of us are disqualified from life because of past choices. This blog is a hypothetical letter to her youth pastor saying that the message of love that she speaks of extends to you too.

“World’s Worst Christian”: this is Just another WordPress.com site to say that you’re not alone.

You recently posted on fb that “Christians get very angry toward other Christians who sin differently than they do.” (Philip Yancey) and I’m here to add my voice to the masses that he who is without sin should cast the first stone.

I’m here to say that Jesus doesn’t throw rocks but He does turn tables and dear reader- I don’t know who you are- but I hope He keeps turning over the tables for you.

I don’t always talk about Jesus or faith or racism or poverty or relationships but I write knowing that you could read this and although I don’t expect you to agree with me (or even read it) I want to write with you in mind.

May every word count.

-Val
