At noon we spontaneously opted for Chinese take-out and ate at home. For dessert, I opened a crumbled fortune cookie and picked out the little scroll.
"Forgiveness does not change the past,
but it does enlarge the future."
Forgiveness! I laughed, amazed at the angelic reminder to keep practicing forgiveness for everything. I knew something was up, because I've never had a fortune cookie like it before. Forgiveness effects the future. I never quite thought of it that way.
Sometimes the angels need to speak loud so I'll get the message. How sweet to come through a broken, but tasty fortune cookie.
That's the way the cookie crumbles...
Christ tells us to forgive 70 x 7 times, perhaps that's an indication of how often we may choose to entertain old grievances in our thoughts. Forgiveness brings liberation--expansion.
And, the first person I need to forgive is myself.
My prayer for today is that forgiveness will set you free from a troubling past. God loves you and His angels are with you to comfort, guide, and protect. Expect the happy things of God to come your way today.
Love and joyful blessings,
