Learning to ForgiveJanuary 30, 2010
Then I think how sad, how pitiful I am. I am blessed. I have all my family safe and healthy, plenty of food, water and things I don’t need. I think of the people of Haiti. They’ve lost family, children, friends, limbs and everything that formed what just a few days ago was their life. They are singing praises to the Lord thanking Him for their lives and the one measly meal they ate this day. A woman stumbles along the roof of what once was her home searching for anything left of what once made up her life. Someone, probably a journalist, asks if life will go on. “Life will go on,” she replies. “God lives. God is with us. Life will go on.” That is faith, I know, and I need to pray for the ability to forgive and someday love those who’ve hurt me and mine.
