Finally Getting It

I spoke in Church today. My talk was on the topic of repentance. Repentance is something I never really understood clearly until I was in my forties. I thought that repentance was something that was painful and hard to do. I didn't understand that repentance is a gift from God, a blessing to help us feel happier and better, a way to overcome our shame and embarrassment of the mistakes we always make.

There is no down side to repentance,  only good things come from it. It helps us reach higher and do better and become the kind of person we'd really like to be. I have come to a point in my life where I am thankful for the blessings of repentance.
