The past is done as you have said
But still it plays within your head
To rob you of all rest and peace
To hold you fast with no release
But think on this, He's always there
To take your burden and your care
He saw it all when on that cross
To cleanse us from our filth and dross
Just think on Him, how much He gave
When phantoms once again enslave
Just tell them that you have a friend
Who'll not forsake you in the end
And tell them plainly to get lost
Because for you He paid the cost!


---------------------------------------------
Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:7-8

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Denise...thank you for this excellent reminder. We can do nothing to change the past, but we can learn from it and go on. If He has forgiven us our past, so should we. Thank you my dear friend, I needed this today

As always a nice poem, sorry I'm late
Forgive
And now I'm in a hurry too  

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
