I am joining Carolyn for her link party to share my one word for the year. I believe the end of each month is a good time for me to share and I plan to keep it simple by sharing a monthly update of how my word choice for the year is making a difference in my life.
As I reflect back at the word I chose for this year, I realize that forgiveness comes in many shapes and forms. To forgive someone verbally is sometimes hard, especially if that person doesn’t even realize that you have been hurt by their actions. I started keeping a journal a year or so ago to help me to forgive and to move on, which helped tremendously but I still need to continue to work on the act of “forgiving”.
As life moves forward and years have passed by, I have come to realize it’s time to put the past behind me, to forgive and to move forward. If I don’t, I will never find the peace that I seek or understand that sometimes God places us in a position to learn, to grow and to heal.
