I am a Turner and am neither embarrassed nor humiliated. In fact I feel grateful that you both had the faith, strength, desire and courage to navigate the stormy seas of this soul challenge to the place of forgiveness. I am inspired by the honesty with which you share your journey with others(with David's continued support) and I am hopeful that your blog will touch and help others in their dark hour of despair. G-ma is very proud of the contribution of Josh and Ally to this ill informed response to your post.
Where you might have been vanquished, you have risen victorious through faith and the grace and love of God.
Blossom, I love this post, it is beautiful! There is nothing more encouraging than seeing God's redeeming power at work in a seemingly insurmountable situation. Such an example of Christ's forgiveness, grace and restoration. Blessings to you and yours!
Thank you! Josh and Ally's comments brought a lump to my throat. This emotional subject touches more families than what we think. Thank you for being brave enough to allow us to walk through this journey of forgiveness, healing and restoration with you. Your story is inspiring and gives hope to those faced with similar situations. Hugs to each of you!
I like to think that I am a good friend of Blossom's. I met her when she was in the midst of this trial and I have been humbled and amazed at how she's allowed God to transform this excruciatingly difficult season of her life into something that ministers to so many. I applaud her, David and their children for their courage and devotion to family. I think when someone leaves a critical comment without being privy to the facts, that's the enemy at work. Satan surely doesn't want Blossom and her family to continue the hard work of allowing God to redeem what could easily have been the end of a marriage and family. I believe the Turner family is a powerful ministry to those who need to learn the grace of forgiveness. Bless you all.
I applaud the whole Turner family for making their lives an open book for others to read, learn and gain hope from. This is an act of courage that few families would ever consider. I deeply admire their authenticity and vulnerability. In a world where we have constant pressure to conform, keep secrets and hide our true selves the Turner's have blazed the trail for other couples and individuals to embrace the courage to be vulnerable. I admire the family unity they have displayed in order to give others hope of healing and forgiveness. Their story is proof positive of the amazing grace of God.
