Her Apology - Twenty-Three Years Later
by Tesse Wilson
10/26/2017 / Christian Living
Twenty-three years later he got a message from her
She made brief disclosures and said she was sorry
He was happy to hear from her
Yet he was upset when he learned the truth
That she had felt the same way he did
But she was now saying this twenty-three years later
As he reflected
He felt anger
The way she behaved back then left him with the impression that she rejected him
He read her message again
Looking for words that he longed to hear her say
They were not on the page
The feelings were mutual she said
Did she mean she was crazy about him as he was about her?
Because twenty-three ago her actions did not show it
Hmm! Richard sighed and thought to himself;
Her words are quite formal and vague
How dare she just pops up requesting that I accept her apology
Did she really consider how I would feel?
Yes, I moved on but with the hurt
Men hurt too
Did she know that I was truly in love with her?
It was never infatuation
Mixed emotions are now what Richard has towards her
He wants to forgive her
But there is a struggle as he remembers the way she treated him
He has decided that he will not respond to her
He will ignore her request for him to indicate that he accepted her apology
He wondered if it is sincere
Since she did not say what he really wanted to hear
When she realized that he read it but did not respond
She understood then what if feels like to be ignored
Not just by anyone but someone you care about
Twenty -three years ago she had done the same to him and thought it would never affect him
After all, males don't take such things to heart she had reasoned
They move on,
This is not always true
Boys and men have feelings too
What should she do?
She did not want to impose herself upon him, hence the tone of her apology
How could she reach out to him without compromising her faith and Christian values?
She feels it is unfair for her to take all the blame
She must pray for him not just to forgive her; but that he comes to know the Lord who is healing her
For she lived for many years with the same hurt he felt
Heavenly Father, please heal Richard for my past actions have hurt him...
Let him know that you have never ignored him
From heaven, your eyes have always been upon him
Draw him to yourself
Let him experience the depth of your love for him
For your love is greater than the love a woman can have for a man
Greater than the love a man can feel for a woman
Greater than a mother's love for her child
Your love lifts us
Just a few words from her prayer
She wishes he could hear
Just to know she is sincere
