February comes from the Latin Word “To Cleanse”. A lot of us mainly think of it as the month we celebrate Valentine’s Day. In 1964, February was also declared American Heart Month. The 1st Friday of the Month is National Wear Red to raise awareness and support the fight against heart disease.
What is the point I’m getting at? Even though life may have unforeseen circumstances, we must take care of ourselves physically and mentally. One major way we can do this is to examine our hearts. I was taught at a early age “Don’t go to bed angry”. Easier said then done but there can be a starting point.
Give that friend a call you havent spoken to in years. February is also Black History Month celebrating freedom and accomplishments but sometimes we can hold ourselves with chains of unforgiveness. Free yourself today!!
Freeing yourself from any hate
Can release weight
That has been keeping you down for years
Causing pain and tears
By Friends or enemies
So try the forgiveness recipe
Love your neighbor
Which is asked by our Savior
Take back control over you
Leave it in the past from what you’ve been through
Allowing God to open doors that’s are new
