Forgiveness or loss, your choice
4/15/2005 12:55:18 PM
It is human nature to hurt the ones you love. It must be human nature to forgive them as well. What if you were the other one on the other end of a bad day and snapped at your most beloved friend, and what if she never ever forgave you. You would be devastated.
Forgiveness, such a long, difficult word. I struggled for years trying to forgive a man that was dead. My estranged husband had died and how dare he leave me with all that anger and hatred for what he had done over the years. One day I began to see how much my inability to forgive him was ruining the woman that I was supposed to be. Instead I was becoming bitter, judgmental and hard as rock. I tried to forgive him but it was just too hard since he was already gone.

One night during a dream I found my husband sitting next to me on our living room couch, asking me how our son was doing in school. It was as if we were just having the most normal conversation and nothing was wrong. I actually told him I forgave him in that dream. When I woke I couldn’t believe what I had just dreamed. Normally dreams of him were hurtful and mean. This one was orchestrated by the hand of God I am certain for it never would have happened. It was so vivid that I will never forget it. I felt such a peace come over me. I know, sounds corny but it really happened.

The reason I write this is that recently I needed to forgive someone else that I really love for hurting me. Know that time has gone by I realize how much she was the one hurting, not me. When someone really hurts you it is that person that needs the attention, not the wounded soul with his or her feelings hurt. It is human nature to hurt the ones you love. It must be human nature to forgive them as well. What if you were the other one on the other end of a bad day and snapped at your most beloved friend, and what if she never ever forgave you. You would be devastated. Today I realized how devastated I would be if I had to wait until one of us died to have forgiveness.

I realized spending the rest of my life with out this angel in my life was too big of a sacrifice to make.

Bless us all
Rebecca
