I never understood why there are certain holidays in the Jewish faith that are not practiced in the Christian faith since they occur in the Old Testament of my Bible too... Like the Day of Atonement. Couldn't we all use a day to let the water pass under the bridge and begin again?
I know in Christ we are forgiven for all our sins, but that's not exactly the same as forgiveness of and from our fellow humans, who can be oh so guilty of just being human!
Today, in that spirit, I sent a card to someone I care about that shut me out several years ago because she did not agree with some life choices I made for the benefit of my family.
I opened a door.
Not sure if she'll walk through but I took the chance.
Although it is not part of my weight loss program, I can tell you I sure feel 10 pounds lighter.
