You know, forgiving oneself is one of the most difficult and challenging things
to do. A very dear friend of mine gave me a very special handmade item
that she had made herself. I was so thrilled and all these years I've
enjoyed it. Lately she admitted to me she had not made it due to time restraint
and had a friend do it. I expressed my disappointment but told her I forgave
her...yet she is the one that is struggling with Foregiveness of herself. We set
such stiff restrictions on ourself(some way overboard) and find it difficult to
even talk to the person we disappointed but yet who forgave us. Elder Holland is
such an incredibly spiritual and tender-hearted Apostle and I know my friend, if
she will humble herself and realize she is not perfect and can be forgiven, as I
have forgiven her will allow Heavenly Father to heal her heart.
Great thoughts. Perfect message for this Easter season.
I loved the story and application. Thank you, Scott for reminding us of the
messages of General Conference and how we can benefit from them.
Wonderful application of a wonderful talk!
