“One can never change the past, only the hold it has on you. And while nothing in your life is reversible, you can reverse it nevertheless.
[Merle Shain]

Joan Chittister shares these words in her book The Gift of Years: “The time is here. We have a chance to become what all the living enabled us to be. Now we can make sense of it. But only if we can let go of the past. Only if we can let go of all the old ideas of success, all the old marks of humanity and finally, now, allow ourselves to become simply human instead.”

The past were roads once travelled, worn, leading us onward.
Today I ask that we would bless our life, all of it, allowing us to become whole in this new day.
