I just read the most powerful book besides the bible in quite awhile. I like to read books that really make me think and I also like to read books that are just fluff your standard chic lit books. This one however was the kind that really made me think. I have been really angry since our dog Keisha was killed. I have had horrible thoughts of what I would do to the man who did this to her. Reading The Shack by Wm. Paul Young really opened my heart. It talked about forgiveness. Forgiveness is not about forgetting, it is letting go of that persons throat. Forgiveness does not mean that you will forget. Forgiveness allows you to cut off the pain and grief that the other person caused you. Forgiveness allows you to start to heal and takes away that persons power who hurt you. I have had a couple of people who have hurt me in my life and this book has really helped me. I must learn to forgive so that I can move on and live my life. Losing Keisha was painful not as painful as when I lost my nan and da but pretty close. I love you Keisha thanks for being with us and giving us your love.
