As we begin Advent we too can move forward to a newness of life; we can leave the past behind. The season of Advent is here to remind us that healing can come into our lives when we come to know that we can hand the past over to God and experience true forgiveness reconciliation, and newness of life. We can come to know what Andrew came to discover that first day long ago. We can come to know this in our marriage, in our family, and with others in our lives. We can move forward in those relationships through handing over the past hurts and disappointments to God.
Forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves. Be good to yourself today. Make a great day!
Today we celebrate the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle—“First Chosen.”
