Pain inflicted by others be it deliberate or not can take time to heal. Sometimes it can take a life time. Since there is not enough time left in my life on earth to dwell on such un-forgiveness I choose to let it go and move on.

My Prayer:

By Your grace and mercy oh Lord, I make a conscious effort to move out of anger and into forgiveness. I thank You for making the provision of forgiveness in Your plans for me . . . not only for my own desperate need to be forgiven but through Your indwelling Spirit working within me the one who has hurt me deeply can be forgiven by me. The pain will probably always remain deep in my heart to a certain degree but not consuming unless I dwell in/on un-forgiveness. Thank You for allowing me to experience this particular pain as it is causing me to see the truth of my own short comings and on-goings that need change. I praise You for allowing this because now I have opportunity to share the fruit of it all with my husband, our girls and grandson. It is my prayer that great growth will continue to come out of this terrible time of hurt and pain. I also realize that my part is to allow You to finish this work not only in me but allow You to deal with the others involved for I do not posses the power to change hearts as You do. I am thankful that You will always complete that which You begin.
Praises be to Your Name :)

Psalm 130:4 (The Message)

3-4 If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
and that's why you're worshiped.

It has been a very l o n g week but the Lord is busy bringing us to a better spiritual and emotional place. My honey and I are drawing closer to the Lord which in turn brings forth even more fruit of our closeness with each other. That, my blogging friends, is a major joy to my heart :) The old negative family priorities have been at last put away making room for the ones growing out of the seed of respect for my husband planted by my Father. He has recently poured out His "Miracle Grow" and now the once small sickly seedlings are growing in leaps and bounds. It is after all the only true growth enhancer available to us.

I wish our veggie garden would grow so fast.

I pray that your day will be filled to overflowing with Abba's "Miracle Grow," that whatever He has begun in you will come to great fruition for His own glory.

I send hugs to all of you because we all are in desperate need of a big ole Hug :)

Good stuff ma'am. Some days I wonder if I would recognize not being too heavy of heart.
