LOVE KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS!!!
I know day nine is almost over, but you have to excuse me for such a late post. Tonight I was busy honoring and celebrating individuals who have advocated to change the lives of people with disabilities or special needs, military personnel, veterans and their families with Rosalynn Carter, John Travolta, and Kelly Preston at the Easter Seals Advocacy Awards Dinner in downtown Washington, DC. Daddy was home with the boys so I could do my working-momma thing!
With that being said, before the day ends, I just want you to remember that love keeps no record or wrongs. If that were the case, God would have cut us off a LONG time ago! If you're anything like me, you have to keep a list of every little thing. Keeping a tally of everything can be a good quality, but when it comes to the wrongs, stop counting and holding onto those hurts; they're only adding to the pain. Sometimes, if you want to move forward in life, you have to let things go. Stop keeping a count of those wrongdoings and just keep it moving! God knows the plans and the PEOPLE He has in store for you.
There are a lot of folks who have done me wrong, but tonight I was reminded of how precious life is, and how blessed and fortunate I am to have the life I live. I don't have time to keep a record of the wrongdoings others have done to me. I'm writing off those hurts, moving forward with my life, and I truly hope this inspires you to do the same. I was spreading so much love in that room tonight, John Travolta probably felt it on stage, and YOU probably even felt it at home. People have a tendency to remember the things they should forget, but forgiveness is one of the most important parts of love, so just forgive and forget. It's all about the love!
See you tomorrow for more of the Love Challenge!
