I have to confess something. Until last night, I had never seen a Madea movie. Ever. Last night I watched Diary Of A Mad Black Woman. What an incredible movie that was. I love the movie. I loved the message being portrayed, and YES ... I loved Madea. I think what I loved most is that it made me think about things in my own life a little more. OK ..a LOT more. Thinking about things like...the power of forgiveness. There was a line in the movie that went something like..."You know how to tell if you've forgiven someone? If you have the chance to hurt them and you don't..then you've forgiven them." Really made me think. I think about the people in my life that have hurt me. Have I forgiven them? I want to believe I have because I can't think of anyone that I would hurt, given the chance. Is it enough to say though, that I would not hurt them, therefore I have forgiven them. Some wounds run deep and I am human. Sometimes, I can un-bury that hurt in an instant if I let myself think about it. Does that mean that I haven't forgiven? I want to believe I have. I want to be a good Christian and walk in the way that God would have me walk. Powerful things to be thinking.
