Facing a husbands choice: Great post from POTSC

Love, love, LOVE this post on the People Of The Second Chance blog by Karen Hammons!

Karen poignantly describes what she and her children face and the grace they choose to embrace as the family of a convicted sex offender (I totally did not intend for that to rhyme).

Here’s a little taste:

I am one who is a shade of gray in a conversation that others want to keep black and white.
I’m not the victim. 
I’m not the offender. 
I’m one who loves and sees value in both human beings. I choose to look at them without the mask of their label. I choose to see the heart and soul God created for a spectacular purpose that supersedes this ugliness that comes from hell itself.

That’s why I choose to use my voice and be loud.

Loud about audacious grace, unyielding mercy, tenacious hope, and glorious redemption.

I have seen and experienced its reality of being available for ALL who are affected.

This really hits home for me because of things my family has experienced.  I believe that there’s a movement coming, born out of the grey area that Karen writes about, and I believe it’s a movement of grace!
