I am so thankful for forgiveness: from God, from Amy, from others, from myself. Amy and I will never forget the pain we've been through, but how much harder would it be if we would have spent the past 2 1/2 years stuck in un-forgiveness, un-repentance, and un-gratefulness. God is a big God, yet so personal, gracious, forgiving, kind, merciful, firm, and for us. Even His discipline is an act of grace and kindness. I can't explain why God saved me from the "far country," saved my marriage, restored us as a family and continues to show us more of Himself, but I am grateful.
Romans 2:4, (NASB)
4 Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?
