We forgive you mommy

posted by Cheryl Petersen

“If you knew the gift of God…” are words imputed to Christ Jesus in the Gospel John. This gift of God is also imputed to us.

God’s gifts are not restricted to that which can be observed and studied, the material reality. God’s gifts are not reducible to only that which can be discovered in the tangible world.

God’s gifts are spiritual truths that inspire, heal, and restore.

The next morning, she apologized to her children for being upset the day before. Her children looked at her and said, “Oh, we forgive you mommy.”
