I was not on-line very long yesterday, and did not realize my offer would ever start such a controversy. I apologize for that, but I had no other way to extend my offer to killamunati. All I can say is that I felt led to do this small thing for her. My first thought was to send her a bottle of Sesame oil, my favorite, but shipping costs, plus the fact the nearest post office is nine miles away and not handicapped friendly, made the giftcard to seem a more logical choice. Generous people have blessed me beyond measure, and I can never repay them in kind. My hope is by helping someone will help create a ripple effect and someday Killi will be led to be a blessing to someone else. I wrote her that while people can put her down, it is only she herself that can keep her down. All I want to do is try and give her some support while she tries to rise above her current circumstances. Please let me do this tiny act of kindness without further comment, and let killamunati keep her own conscience. In the long run, her actions, just like all of our actions are between us and God. We are not called to be judges, but we are called to lift up one another.
Once again I am sorry to have played a part in this controversy. I will also ask a favor from all of you, Monday I slipped on some ice and twisted my back. Last night my chronic pain became acute and unbearable, the pain continues today. For those of you who believe in the power of prayer, please lift me up, I am in agony.
