If you have been reading you know that I have been keeping track of what each day is in the month of April. There have been silly things like "Draw a Picture of a Bird Day," to serious things like "Reach as High as You Can Day." Well...today was "Rubber Eraser Day."
As silly as this sounds, I thought it was a great idea! Why not have a day that we all have in common..."mistakes." We all make them. The tricky part is to erase each one from your brain. Thank goodness for the inventor of the eraser. I wish there was an inventor who would erase the mistakes we make that do not exist on paper. I am not sure there would be an eraser big enough for mine.
The thing that I have learned talking to people... is that we have all made mistakes....even when we think ours is huge, we feel the sting... others have lived it. The other hard part would be to get over it and move on. I have to admit this is something that I REALLY struggle with.
When Macaiden does his homework he gets sooooo frustrated when he makes a mistake. I tell him ALL the time that it is ok....it is OKAY. How else would we learn if we did not make mistakes. We make the mistakes and learn... whether in math, sports, music, or relationships...the key is...how do we overcome them?
I also need to remember that God is my ultimate Eraser. When I ask for forgiveness HE has forgiven me. My mistakes are completely erased. (I have to remind myself of this constantly) Why can't we forget things like God can? Why do I hold on?
My Repurpose for today : To remember that my eraser is huge. No matter how bad it stings or how many times I mess up....My eraser never disintegrates.
