Forgive…

TrustIt’s been a while since I’ve written.  We had a busy summer.  Compared to previous summers, it went well.  I can say that because I wasn’t having a party the first day of school… like last year.

Now that school is back in session, our days are packed.  So much has been going on that I haven’t had time to write.

We’ve had some heart aches and disappointments lately.  We are still in the fight to bring my husband home.  God is working… I’m resting my faith in that.

There are a lot of things going on in our lives that are out of my control.  Lots of people making decisions that affect our family, and some of them have been hard to swallow.  I’ve been in prayer and ultimately, I know that God is in control.

I always have to remember that man is… well, human.  God is the only perfect being.  Man will fail us, even when they don’t set out to do so.  We can’t fully put our hope in each other, we must put our hope in God and God alone.

There are going to be people in our lives that disappoint us, lie to us, change their minds, hurt our feelings, and break our hearts.  I know that you’ve all experienced this… it’s hard.  What is harder is realizing that you have done the same to someone else at some point in your life.

The best thing we can do is accept that we are all human, we all make mistakes, and we all need forgiveness.  Through my prayers, I have allowed myself to forgive others of their imperfections and come to terms with my own.  Sometimes, it’s hard when it is friends or family that hurt us, but once we realize that we are all in the same boat, it becomes easier.

It is more important to have imperfect friends than no friends… cut each other some slack… forgive…

“God isn’t a mere man.  He can’t lie.  He isn’t a human being.  He doesn’t change his mind.  He speaks, and then he acts.  He makes a promise, and then he keeps it.”  Numbers 19:23
