I screamed on the drive to drop the kids off to school yesterday morning! Our Jujupooh sat in the front seat crying, upset at her Dad, and he was at home upset at her and I asked the kids, “What’s the lesson we can learn from this?” The car went unusually silent as none of them could think of any lessons, until Joshie, my soon to be 5 year old, says very quietly, “Forgive.” That made the God maniac/mommy super happy to know that my son at such a young age is already learning this important lesson which I’m still trying to master at 41! I explained to them that no one is perfect and oftentimes we have to be quick to overlook the faults of others and focus on their positives instead and their Dad has so many positives they can focus on! Great job, Joshie!
“That friend of ours with no false humility used to say: “I haven’t needed to learn how to forgive, because the Lord has taught me how to love.”
I would love to get here where I don’t need to learn how to forgive because God has taught me to love. But, I’m getting closer, though, and last week I called my hubby and said to him, “It’s like I’m falling in love with you all over again.” He then replied, “Ok, what do you want?” LOL! It’s like I’m seeing him in a whole different light. And not just him, everyone. Some close friends I hung out with on Saturday, I couldn’t stop telling them how blessed I feel to have them in my life. My kids, I can’t stop kissing them and telling them how much I love them. I went to sleep snuggled between my two sons who were thrilled to be sleeping next to mommy and I thanked God for this beautiful life He has blessed me with. Yesterday, I took some time to tell my assistants at work how much I appreciate them and there would probably be no posts if God didn’t bring them in to help me help my hubby.
LOVE YOUR ENEMIES! Everything is between us and God! There is no need to forgive when we learn how to love. Besides, everything that is done with the intent to harm us, God multiplies it hundreds fold for our good!
WE ROLL WITH GOD
