REMEMBRANCES

ORIGINAL WOOD SCULPTURE BY PAUL BOECHER

For most of us, memories of past misdeeds are things we’d rather not remember.  We’d rather tuck them away in the deepest recesses of our minds and never bring them to the light of day.

If you’re a parent, you may recall plucking one of those negative memories out of the depths when one of your children is enduring a similar issue.

I have been blessed with a short memory.  God knew when He made me. That I’d have a problem with guilt so he built that into me when I was born.  The ugliest, most difficult times have been captured in my brain, but are difficult to recall.  I guess it’s a defense mechanism to keep me from reliving the pain.

Sometimes remembering is vital to our moving forward.  If we forget how we’ve arrived at a certain point, we become stagnant and apathetic. 

The things we learn as children will be the basis for our belief system, a guide for living and a reason to look forward to eternity.

Jesus has forgiven all of our sins – past, present and future.  Now it’s up to us to live for Him.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Terrific post! However, something got scrambled when you copied and pasted the Bible verse. You may want to untangle it.
