When I look back on my early years as a child, I am grateful that I don’t have to carry bitterness or unforgiveness. I’m free of all that. Whew!!!! Why carry all that muck around for years and years? Even though my parents weren’t Christian, I had a picture of Christ on my wall knocking at a door. I must have become a Christian then because that picture gave me hope and peace and most of all comfort. I also had the comfort of Psalm 23, “Though I walk through the shadow of death I will fear no evil for You are with me” . For a child that helped me through so much. I have learned forgiveness so I don’t have to carry any burdens especially to forgiving myself. Life is such a joy for me right now even through some health issues for my husband and hurting for my son and grandchildren. The thing is I can be filled with gratefulness and joy each day if I choose to be that way. What a burden that has been lifted off my shoulders!!
