Sunday, Gracia Burnham spoke at our church. I had read her book and was just blown away by her experiences in the jungle. It was amazing to hear her in person. She spoke about their captivity, and how her feelings of anger and hatred and bitterness towards her captors had turned to compassion and forgiveness as the years have passed. What a testimony she has, and what a blessing she was to me! May I always have that spirit of forgiveness and compassion even for those who try to hurt me!

  1. The last line of your post really spoke to me today. I definitely needed that. It's a really hard thing to "love your enemies". Thanks for the reminder, Sharon!
