The language of flowers: if you need to reconcile with someone, lily-of-the-valley proclaims, let's make up.
The action of reconciling : the state of being reconciled
to restore to friendship or harmony. to settle, to resolve
During Lent I always follow an on line devotional and this past week they focused on reconciliation. So for my word today I'm sharing some of the thoughts from this devotional.
Reconciliation is nothing short of a miracle. Reconciliation preserves a relationship that could have just as easily been flung aside.Reconciliation is always a good reason for celebration. It is life-giving. The first step in reconciliation is letting go of the past. The more we hold on to the way we think things should have been, the lesslikely we are to see the opportunity emerging for a brand new way No matter how bad it has been, there is always an opportunity to turn our failures into success, especially if we can learn from ourmistakes and grow in wisdom. Those who refuse to seek reconciliation starve themselves, but those who freely offer forgiveness give the best gift. Love makes the difference.
