"What you need to know about the past it is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new. Right now."
- Author Unknown

I have to give credit to Stampin' Mama (Erica) for this wonderful quote. She shared it on a very personal scrapbook layout on her BLOG and it spoke to me in a big way. The past is something I have been struggling with for some time now and I need to be free of it. I think this is true for many of us. We are so tied up in past mistakes or past pains that we are not free to live our present life as God means it to be lived. Rather than seeing the past as what has brought up to this very moment it becomes what is keeping us from this very moment.

I know that there are not many visitors to this BLOG and that is okay. But if you do visit here and read this and like me are struggling to be free of the past to live in the present my prayer for you is that God will help you make this happen. Also if you stop by here and have not ever visited Erica I encourage you to do so. You can just click here. She is one talented and amazing woman!
