I encourage you sweet Mom, refuse to be weighed down with past sins, failures and wrong choices; and don’t waste another minute feeling guilty. We beat ourselves up for things we should have done the, “woulda, coulda, shoulda” mentality. To move ahead – if it’s possible – ask forgiveness of others, embrace the present, and sprint towards your future. It’s a new day – fix what you can and move on. Choose the path of peace.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. (1 Corinthians 9:24, NIV)
