Forgiveness: Day ??

 

 

 

 

 

I am still reading my Forgiveness plan, but have been too miffed to post anything of importance.  I don’t want to forgive this person.  I just want to pretend that she never existed and stay bitter and angry….It’s much easier than having my wounds exposed and torn back open.

I was talking to a gal who I volunteer with today,  and she was telling me about the struggle she has with forgiving someone in her life too.  I was thankful for her comment.  Because it reiterated to me, that EVERYONE has someone who they struggle to forgive.   Last weekend, Kevin and I watched a documentary about a lady and her twin sister who were survivors of Auschwitz. More importantly–survivors of Josef Mengele, the infamous Nazi doctor who experimented on twins, disabled people and dwarfs during the Holocaust.  She lived through atrocities that I can not even fathom, but her message is simple.

Forgive. Forgive your worst enemy. Forgive.

This woman is beautiful, her message is beautiful.

 

Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.  ~St. Augustine~

Thank you to my friend who gently (and without knowing) reminded me why I am fighting to forgive.  So tomorrow, I start with renewed fervor on my journey to forgiveness.
