Calendar Confusion

Calendar Confusion by Peggy Blann Phifer @pegphifer

The above picture is the April page of my oversize wall calendar that is on my desktop in front of my computer. I use it to keep track of any appointments I have, as well as birthdays and anniversaries, etc., and daily words written on a particular day for a project I’m working on.

As a regular blogger, this calendar also shows upcoming guest posts and the days they’re to be posted to my blog. They’re even color-coded.

I try to get the posts formatted and scheduled several days ahead of time and send an email to the guest blogger with the link where they can find it on the day it goes live.

So far, so good, right?

Wrong.

Because I’m always working ahead of myself, it’s not unusual for me to lose track of what day it actually is! All too often I have to look at the time/date on the taskbar in the lower right corner of my computer to reorient myself.

Confession. This confusion has caused some unfortunate mea culpa incidents. Sad, but true. Thankfully, those who’s post schedules I’ve messed up have been understanding and forgiving.

Now … think with me for a moment: If these dear, wonderful and understanding folk can forgive my little oopsies – and I say little because I’ve always been able to work something out – how much GREATER is the forgiveness of our Lord when we manage to make some pretty huge oopsies along life’s road?

I find it mind-blowing. He forgave the thief on the cross and promised him a place in paradise. He forgave the woman caught in adultery, telling her to ‘go, and sin no more.’ He forgave the woman at the well and gave her the living water. And He asked his Father to forgive the very people who were crucifying Him.

The truth is, no matter what we’ve done—and ask for forgiveness—He’ll always say … I forgive.
