April 18 2014: Painfully I Admit I Pray for a Happy Easter

Friday, April 18, 2014

I can not be less of who I am deep down inside. I have always wanted to do good and be good. When people hurt me I forgive quickly and move on. Forgiving and being the better person has always been a bit easier for me than others this is not a brag but just who I am. I am a natural peacemaker and do gooder. Please know I pay the price for it sometimes too.

Forgiveness is a muscle way deep down in our soul. It needs to be exercised regularly. It does not mean you condone actions or words but that you are not going to let it become bitter and smelly by thinking, talking and replaying the feeling over and over. It has been studied that when you replay trauma or hurt over and over it can actually create the same chemicals in your body as at the time of the situation. Which can damage our health. Why would we want to do this....... go through pain over and over and over by not forgiving.

I am trying to amp up my faith. It has been a rough week as it always is before holidays for me as I try to deal with the Negativity of several people that spirals out of control. So while others are wishing me a Happy Easter that is all I can think of. Yes my friend I PRAY it will be a peaceful and happy celebration. I guess HAVING FAITH mean leaping and believing you wont fall. Kind of Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. ( There is no place like home there is no place like home. ) for me it is ( There is no loving, caring, and forgiving family like mine) I CAN DO THIS RIGHT JESUS? CATCH ME IF I FAIL JESUS!

I love you all my Sparks Family and Friends and I Hope you all have a Joyous Easter Celebration.

    Yes, so true. Sometimes to forgive ourselves is the most difficult, then we look at Jesus and realize He paid the price for our personal forgiveness, as well as paving the way to forgive others!

    Very well said! I do wish you a blessed Easter and rise with Him in HIS Resurrection Power.

    Through your own pain you will be compassionate toward others and be able to help them through it.

    Stay strong in FAITH and He will see you through. emoticon emoticon
