Today I am honored to be guest posting over at Laura Rath’s place, sharing my heart as part of her comparison series. Comparison is something that I am all too familiar with. I’m still not quite free of it yet, but I am farther along than I was.  In my post, I share about a time that comparison nearly destroyed my life.  Here is a small glimpse:
