A New Year and a New Outlook, Learning to Forgive

January 4, 2018

The new year seems like a great time to consider the last year and plan how to do better. I ask myself what I want to change about myself and what I need to do to draw closer to my Heavenly Father.

My daughter-in-law, Kelsi Stephenson is a high adventurer and a gifted editor. She chose video editing for her recap medium.  Here’s the link.https://vimeo.com/249472064?ref=fb-share&

For some reason the link keeps getting removed so I took off the number 1 off the end. So cut and paste the link and then add a 1 at the end. Let’s see if this works!

The most important change that I see for my life is to forgive those who have offended me.  By not forgiving, I only make myself unhappy.

But it isn’t easy. I need to pray each day to control my thoughts and not to ruminate on things that make me unhappy and drive away the Holy Spirit.

But the Lord promises that if we we turn to Him, he will make weak things become strong. I know He can and will help me overcome the temptation to resent and review my justification for disliking others.

I know that in the eternal scope, the offenses are not significant. If I can only draw back and see the broader view, it’s easier to feel charity toward others and shrug off their petty issues.

All my best to all of you! Happy, healthy, productive and peaceful New Year.
