Forgivness and Love

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgive one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Ephesians 4:32
Yesterday the children were sent to their rooms for disobeying my strict warnings NOT to dump a rather large jar of bubbles on themselves. While I was still red in the face mad and cleaning soap up off the porch  Abbey came out and handed me a note. Then quickly returned to her room.
It reads: I am sorry Mom for disobeying you. I hope you forgive me.
Okay so in that moment my heart melted and my anger was lifted. I thought to myself...
 Of course my dear, sweet child I will forgive you a millions times over. I love you!
No matter how mad their actions make me I will always forgive my children and love them with all that I have.
It also reminded me that no matter how many times I go my own way and ignore God's will all I have to do is pray...I'm sorry God for disobeying you. Please forgive me....and with open arms He will!
It's as simple as that....not always easy.... but simple.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and may your day be filled with LOVE!
God Bless!

So precious Jen. Sorry about the BIG bottle of bubbles. Were you blessing me. Little did I know what a wonderful lesson that bottle of bubbles would be. THe Lord can use anything to teach us all something.
