Bricks

September 18th, 2017 by G.

I can’t tell you the number of couples I have counseled who, when they are deeply hurt or even just deeply stressed, reach farther and farther into the past to find yet a bigger brick to throw through the window “pain” of their marriage. . . . [I]t is not right to go back and open up some ancient wound that the Son of God Himself died trying to heal.

At my wedding the (Anglican) priest said that the single most important piece of advice he could give, was not to maintain a ‘list’ of grievances. It was good advice.

(Easy for someone as forgetful as I am – but I think he meant to forgive rather than forget…)

Forgetting is the best kind of forgiving, and some of us owe daily thanks for the badness of our memory.
