Forgiveness and more


Forgiveness

So here's the thing - how do you let go of the pain and anger when it is so deep, so real, so justified?  Make a choice, yep make a choice, but not just to let go and forgive, but also to release all of the pain and anger to God and let Him heal it.  Sometimes forgiveness doesn't always mean having a relationship or contact with the person who hurt you but it does ALWAYS mean releasing that person to God.  Let HIM deal with them, let HIM be the one to visit justice in whatever way He sees fit.  You will never ever be able to pay back the pain so let it go. 

 

To forgive is to let a prisoner go free, and discover that the prisoner was you. -Lewis B. Smedes

There's Love in the Air

Or at least on the shelf - LOL!  I've been busy doing some Valentine's Day decorating.  Wanna see:
Ok, my first inspiration was this banner I made:

I've been thinking about it since Christmas and all the great banners I've seen on pinterest definitely inspired me!  
I found this great free printable here:  

Then I added some candy dishes and candies.  I couldn't resist adding a little heart shaped frame of Andy and I kissing in the back of the limo on our wedding day which usually resides on a shelf above my dresser.  
Finally, I needed some height on the right side behind the candy dishes so I made this little banner:

And finally Voila:

I'd love to hear what you think!

PS - I'm selling the banners for 12.50!  If you're interested in purchasing one, you can email me here.
