I love the concept of the clean slate. It is so beautiful and it goes against all the bitterness, regret and unforgiveness that can sink a person.
As individuals, we are washed and renewed by the blood of Christ. Every moment we have the opportunity to have a clean slate through repentance. As mothers, we are privileged to offer that same clean slate to our children, as we train them and teach them forgiveness.
As marriage partners, we have a clean slate as we overcome our arguments, forgive each other, and move on in love.
Each new day as the moring dawns, I like to remind myself of the clean slate. It is important to leave the yesterdays behind, and move forward with excitement and anticipation of the wonders of today. It is wonderful and life-giving, to start anew, with a clean slate.
