This week has been a difficult and sad one. I know I am not the only one to feel it.

Wednesday was the nine year anniversary of my Daddy’s death. Thursday one of our elders from church died after a very short battle with cancer. Friday, of course, was 9/11 and all the memories that came back.

I saw a quote on a friend’s Facebook page yesterday. It said, “The mind replays what the heart cannot delete.”

How true!

I don’t know why God gave us the ability to remember. Perhaps because there is also so much good to remember.

The wonderful man my Daddy was. The remarkable man the elder was in his work for The Lord. The way people came together during and after 9/11.

Our mind replays what our hearts cannot delete. Let’s choose to remember the positive things.
