Mark Your Calendar

I received an e-mail from "Editor Bob" of e-greetings today. I thought I'd share the upcoming occasions with you. So, mark your calendar with these two important dates.

October 22
Eat A Pretzel Day
Used Car Day
Make A Difference Day

Perhaps the best way to celebrate all three is to buy two pretzels, go buy a used car and give the second pretzel to the car salesman? Just a thought.

October 24
International Forgiveness Day

Don't miss your chance. This is the day set aside to either offer or ask for forgiveness. Don't hold a grudge now. You wouldn't want to wait an entire year before you get that chance again. It's not as though you can forgive people as soon as you offend or hurt them. That would be crazy. That's why there's this very special holiday.

I wonder if Jesus was aware of this when he told Peter that he had to forgive those guys up to 490 times. Do you think Jesus thought we could live to be 490 years old? Or, maybe he meant that we get to do all that forgiving in that 24-hour period once/year.


Honestly, I laughed aloud when I read the "Editor Bob" e-mail. I have to admit that I have met people who would do well to ask for forgiveness once a year since they never think they've done any wrong. However, I'm thankful that forgiveness is readily available all year round!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Or on Oct 22 you could eat a pretzel while driving an used vehicle and either have a wreck or deliver for meals on wheels.

It still amazes me God's forgiveness power. How he could forgive Ninavah, or even more mind blowing to me David Burckawitz-The Son of Sam Killer (Yeah I know can't spell to save my life).

Forgiveness Day is just like every other "special" day. One day for prayer, one day for Thanksgiving, one day to remember the risen Christ, one day to remember His birth, one day to appreciate our Pastors, one day to celebrate our marriage, one day to live and one day to die.

Perhaps we should choose to live these celebrations every day. Perhaps then we'll see real change in ourselves.

Ah Forgiveness Day.

I forgive the inventor of the day, and so my forgiveness is done.

I also forgive myself for this post.
