  • 2012-08-04T04:22:38

28 years ago tomorrow my oldest brother was killed by a drunk driver.23 years ago in June my Mother was killed by a drunk driver.I never knew the man who killed my brother, but until this day I wonder where he is, and how he has lived his life. I do know he was not procecuted, and never spent a day in jail.I blame the legal sytem for that.The girl who killed my mom, also died and left behind a smalll son , and a husband.The descisons made by both to drink and drive were made with no forthought of the many lives it would touch.Satan is a powerful force, and tricks people into believing that bad decisions have no consequences.These are God's children too, and were led astray by the evil one.God commands that we must forgive, so that HE also may forgive us.Unforgiveness is a burden on the one who has been offended. My burden has been lifted.

We live our life each day building bubbles of resentment, pain and hate that we store away and forget that it exists. We all take the job of laying down judgement to the people that have hurt us or hurt the people that we love. It hurts to carry the cross of hate on our shoulders. It is a job never meant for us. GOD gave his only son to save the world and provide forgivness for our sins. Forgivness is part of the healing process to inner peace & happinest. Holding hate and judgment in your heart will not turn time back and replace what you have lost. FORGIVE and you shall be forgiven. FORGIVE and you will teach forgiveness, FORGIVE and you shall be free to be happy. Take lifes pain to share with the world to save others lives. No loss is in vain.

With God on our side, we can MOVE MOUNTAINS! We can LEARN to forgive and, with God's help, have FAITH that he will LET us forgive! I love you so much mom and will be praying for you always.

This makes me want to forgive people more. The joy from forgiveness is much more satisfying then harboring ill feelings towards people! Good story, very uplifting! :)

Marie, I don't understand why you have had to travel such a hard road, but I do know you are the most amazing and Godly woman I have ever met. God knows your heart and he has a special plan for you which I am sure includes being reunited with Stephen. Trust that you are the incredible person that I know and love and who has touched so many people in positive ways. You ARE proof of His love!
