This week has been a lesson in forgiveness for me. Our grandson who is inquisitive , strong, funny, hyper and a autistic has tested my patience and mercy.
At the beginning of the week, he broke my mobile screen near the speaker and spider cracks down my screen, but thankfully it is still usable.
Tonight, my laptop screen was not as lucky. I’m at a loss, as both items will need replaced, in time. Living on a fixed income doesn’t afford the luxury of going to the store and buying new. He thinks, if something is broken, we will go shop. So for now, as long as my phone holds out, I’ll be posting from it.
As I sat and cried of the loss of data that I have no idea how to retrieve, family photos, etc. God reminded me that life is precious. As our little one cried and kept repeating sorry, I knew it wasn’t intended and I knew holding onto anger would surely give the devil a foothold. Forgiveness was easy because I love him.
Tomorrow is a new day, a fresh start, a chance to do over things I could have done better today.
The Lord’s mercies are new every day. Mine should be too.
May you know how much Jesus loves you-right now in this moment.
