I teared when I heard this particular song today- Good Good Father.
Today, I learnt that by forgiving others, you are liberating yourself and you are not holding on to something that is hurting you. When you extend forgiveness to others, you are also healing yourself at the same time.
The most important words that hit me were these,
The windows of forgiveness may not be opened forever.
Today is a very different day. I went for my first ukulele jamming, and afterwards I felt this pull to just drop by my dad’s place. I didn’t make any prior arrangement though because…
If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. (A little background, my dad left and was not with us during our growing years – the only time we saw each other was during my grandparents funeral)
If this is the time for me to forgive and reconnect, then things will eventually work out somehow. If it’s not, then it’s not the moment yet.
Today, I took the courage to reconnect with my earthly dad who I have not kept in contact for a long long time due to various reasons and person.
Taking the first step is the hardest.
I went to the house and knocked on the door 3 times. After realising that no one was at home, I went to the field and stood there for a while, trying to analyse certain things. I thought I would give myself 10 minutes to wait, and eventually I see no sign of him. Just when I was about to leave, my dad appeared!
You see, things work in ways we cannot explain.
I was so thrilled and I am relieved that I took this leap of faith. For the longest time, I have been carrying that burden and now it was lifted.
The power of forgiveness and the use of the right words… I am just grateful, ever grateful, ever thankful.
Most importantly, the many encouragements I have received along the way really helps a lot to bring me to this stage of forgiveness.
I forgive him for all the wrong doings.
I felt relieved.
I felt light.
I know I am loved by many.
Today, I also received my dad’s blessings.
That, to me, is one of the greatest blessings.
I am blessed.
Forgiveness is one of the best forms of love.
Above all, I forgive and I am also forgiven.
