Living in an Environment of Love

Pear, our little hummingbird that loves to watch our family all day long.  She knows that she is safe with us.
Abby (7) yesterday asked her grandma if she got a “seashore” when she had her babies.  Grandma smiled and looked a little confused until Anne interpreted Abby’s question.  Marji then laughed and told her that “Yes, I did have C-Sections with my babies!”

Even the most delicate creature has a place in our world.
How many times after making a statement or doing something the wrong way did we realize, “That didn’t come out the way I wanted it to!”  We then try to back track and perhaps apologize for words or actions that were never meant to happen that way.  True friends though forgive us, when needed, and then life goes on.  We learned something from our mistake, and a genuine friend never brings it up again or holds it over our heads.
When we live in an environment of love we are allowed to make mistakes because in many cases, it is how we learn.  To have a “safe” environment to grow and learn in, is what all of us desire.  It is also the way Jesus wants us to see him, as someone who loves us and wants only the best for us.  After feeling sorry and asking for forgiveness, Jesus will never hold anything over our head because we have made a mistake.  Jesus said that he will never remember our sin anymore.  (Hebrews 10:17)  He very much wants us to be like him.  If it is hard to forgive, then ask Jesus for "his" strength, he will give it to you, and he will help you to forget as well.
