Truly forgiving will mean choosing to forget. Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross Society, was reminded one day of a vicious deed that someone had done to her years before. But she acted as if she had never heard of the incident. "Don't you remember it?" her friend asked.
"No," came Barton's reply. "I distinctly remember forgetting it."
Can one really forget? Perhaps not, but one can choose to not dwell on it. Martin Luther said, "You may not be able to prevent the birds from flying over your head, but you can stop them from making a nest in your hair." Likewise, we can choose to not dwell on issues that have been forgiven.
