a little help?

I'd like to ask a favor of you - reader of this blog, the readers that I know, the blog-lurkers that I don't... even the random person that stumbled across this page in a chance Google search or 'go to next blog' moment.

I'm doing some studying for some writing & a speech or two, & would like to utilize your vast life experience to help myself out...




When you hear/think of the words "REPENT" & "REPENTANCE", what comes to your mind? What do you think of? It might be:

  • An image

  • thought

  • concept

  • idea

  • even a specific memory


  • Thanks in advance for your input.
    Ciao!

    Then I remember I'm not Catholic anymore:) And I can't earn my way back into God's graces.

    Two pictures . . .

    REPENT = A bushy-faced whack job holding a sign and getting in my face.

    REPENTENCE - Me being sorry enough to not do it anymore. Frustrating, because I often can't seem to keep myself from "doing it anymore."

    Saying "My bad, won't happen again," and meaning it.

    making a decision not to go the old way and starting to change myself (after trying it myself, I realize that I can't do it myself alone :-) )

    Erica said...

    Feeling bad for what I did and knowing that things need to change (inside of me) so I don't go around the same circle

    i think of forced apologies, e.g. "tell your brother you're sorry". i was rarely sorry, especially when it involved my brother.
