40 days

Yesterday I mentioned 40 Days of Beauty (finding something positive or “beautiful” in each day), and today I had an experience that fits.

In French, we’ve been doing a prayer a week as kind of a devotional and a grammar lesson, and today’s was on repentance and forgiveness.

It was to be a reminder to us that God forgives us and we need to forgive ourselves.

We shared something with a partner that we have asked forgiveness for but for which we haven’t forgiven ourselves.

Once we’d shared it with our partner, we were to tell each other “Dieu te pardonne,” which means “God forgives you.”

It was a really good reminder for me, and I just about cried.


But anyway, it was an awesome reminder, and I appreciated it.
