30 days of Forgiveness 2015 - Day 2 - HOPE
“Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.” --Lewis B Smedes, author of "Forgive and Forget"
Is there an event in your past that you just can't seem to forget even if its effect on your day-to-day life in the present is fairly insignificant? Is it possible to heal this memory today by forgiving the person involved or yourself (or possibly both)? Is it possible to turn this painful memory into some kind of hope for your future?
