I like to think that when we get to Heaven, we'll see the opposite sides of all the injustices that have taken place in the world (or at least the ones that affect us in our lives) so that we can forgive completely and live in Heaven with pure and loving hearts.
When I get angry or hurt with someone, and I feel that what they've done is purposeful, I have a hard time forgiving.... SOOOO, I wasn't planning on spending Christmas with my family this year.... but I did, and all went well.
It's the season of forgiveness, right!! A time when you're supposed to put things aside and remember the actual reason for the season. It's hard, I know... but it makes your life so much richer when you can find a way to do that.
I think I talked myself into just letting go of it all, and enjoying Christmas!! I forgave, even when I wasn't asked for forgiveness, or nobody cared if I forgave... I did, because otherwise, it would have ruined Christmas for my son and for me!!
I also forgave the neighbor who was giving me a hard time with the parking situation a few months back.... she got her way so it was easy for her to come bring a Christmas present to us, it was harder for me to accept it, and offer her some tamales I'd made... but I guess it's much easier to live in peace than in anger, huh?!?!
Hey, 'tis the season, right!!
I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas, and will enjoy a blessed New Year!! Be careful and stay safe!!
