It's not something to be proud of, nor except lightly. I know what my beliefs are and I hold onto them tightly. That doesn't mean that I don't stumble at times, and stumble big time.
When my hubby and I met and got together, he was still married to his first wife. As my Dad would say, I'm always putting the cart before the horse. We even got pregnant with Michael, before we got married. I can say I've got a PhD in doing things the wrong way, and never learning from my mistakes. But I'd like to think that I'll learn someday...
I still strongly state that adultery is wrong, it goes against God's plan for marriage. What I do know now, is that God's love and forgiveness is full of grace and mercy.
I don't know what else to say about this, as I still struggle sometimes with accepting the forgiveness.
I will say that no one is perfect, all make mistakes, all fall short of the glory of God. But because of that failing, we learn the character of God, the love of God, and the forgiveness of God. In our failures and sins, God is made known.
This is so random and rambled.
God is much better than I am, much more full of love and mercy. I am thankful to be His, even in my sins and errors.
