Forgive/ Forget

I have no idea why certain thoughts come to me when they do. This morning I wondered if there was a major character in the Bible who forgets something? I’ll have to  defer to my biblical scholar readers but I don’t remember a single one.

It is said that forgiveness is better than forgetfulness, because to forgive is a conscious act. But I can remember times when I can’t get to forgiveness, and I’m better off to forget than let whatever happened linger.

I am of an age when forgetting things comes more often. For example, Suzy will ask me if she wore a particular sweater the last time we saw a certain couple. For the life of me I don’t. I don’t even remember what shirt I wore, much less whether I’ve washed it since the last time i wore it.

Whether we forgive or forget, the quality of our life improves.
