Pink Colored Cris
I was sitting having breakfast and reading some comments when one of them called my attention. It was from one of our “Love School” viewers who spoke bad about my husband for not allowing me to speak much during the program. At that very moment I felt sad because I knew that in reality it was me who didn’t like to speak much, sometimes I have a hard time expressing myself, only English words come to mind and I felt limited by the language. The comment showed me how I was generating a bad reputation for my husband…
Of course, he wasn’t even bothered by the comment. Like always, he gave me a word of encouragement and that was that. A few minutes later, I received a comment that brought tears to my eyes. I’ve transcribed it below. It’s for these people that I do what I do, I may not speak well, I may not express myself well, but there’s one thing that I’ll never stop doing and that’s: writing, talking and communicating what God has give me.
“Hello! Coming to your blog brings me much happiness and peace. I didn’t like you,I thought you wanted to portray to much sanctity, that your life was the most perfect, I didn’t look at you with good eyes and do you know why? Because I wasn’t converted, much less virtuous. I started reading your book because my mother insisted. I thought: ‘ What can I learn from someone that insists on demonstrating that her life is the color pink?”
Cris, every page read was a lesson about life and about you. I discovered that even being who you are, you had the same problems but there was a difference between me and you, your heart was rendered to God. I was always worried about my professional life, in becoming a respected nurse and stand out in my profession, I forgot about the most important thing: my salvation. !
I distanced myself from God, I went through a process of illness that no doctor could identify. I lost 6 kg kn 10 days, I was week and I realized that no degree was worth anything at that time. I realized that money had made me arrogant, proud and bossy.
While reading your book “The V-Woman,” I learned that I was the most unpleasant person on the face of the earth, I discovered that you don’t live in the pink world that I hat painted for you. I went on to love and admire you. I don’t know how my husband managed to live with me all of these 14 years that we have been together, for I humiliated him and hurt him in a despicable way.
Your book changed my life, my way of seeing the world and people. You taught me what is truly important: my salvation and my family. Now I’ve placed my family in first place. I am developing my homemaker skills with love and care and my family is different. They even appreciate the pudding that didn’t turn out all that well. Today I feel pleasure in being home, in being a wife and mother.
Cris, thanks for existing, thank you for sharing your life with me and showing me that in order to be a V-Woman, it is necessary for me to give my heart to God sincerely. Forgive me for thinking that you wanted to be perfect. In you book you say that you don’t want to be an example. I disagree. You are a mirror for me.
May God bless your life
