"God gives me the ability to remember the good."
God has given me the ability to recall memories of loved ones, not so that I can live in the past, but so that I will be blessed and uplifted now.
Although these people may have passed on to another level of existence, I can remember their faces and the events that have special meaning for me. More important, I remember that our real connection is a spiritual one which is eternal.
If my memories of people and events are not fond ones, I can begin to forgive myself and others for words that may have been said or actions that may have taken place. As I release negative thoughts, new avenues for love, understanding, and harmony open before me.
My day is made brighter through my remembrances, but each day is a fresh opportunity to create new memories.
"I will not forget you."
- Isaiah 49:15
