70 xs 7

I'd been feeling like everything had been painted over in see through brown paint for the last week. I'd never felt this before - my middle name has always been Pollyanna and my rose colored glasses have rarely slipped off my nose. I wondered what was up.

Yesterday in church, while we were singing, I heard God. He was loud and clear in my head. I had not forgiven David last week. He had apologized, I had SAID that I forgave him but....I thought about his offense often. I muttered little comments about other people in his presence whose issues clearly paralleled him. I kept him slightly off balance as only a mom can do.

So I had to go to him right in the middle of the second praise song and whisper in his ear that I was sorry I hadn't forgiven him and that he was really forgiven now.

I don't know about him but I feel GREAT!

I remember one time that I couldn't take communion. It was like my WILL kept me from apologizing, but the Holy Spirit is way stronger than my will.
