Love? Love!

Hopefully, you read Life with Lynnie (LwL), yesterday.  If you didn't, I suggest that you read that entry, now.

Why?

The issue that was stated, was regarding how our Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau changed the law, to improve how police can charge people for drunk driving.

You may wonder why I am against what Justin Trudeau did.

No, I'm not a drunk driver.  I've never been a drunk driver.  And, I rarely ever drink alcohol.

However, when I was driving the school bus years ago, and was hit by the tractor-trailer (truck) driver, it wasn't good for me.

Yes, God blessed my prayer, by saving my daughter from dying.  And, me also.  For that, I praise Him. 

However, I was terribly injured

After the tractor-trailer (truck) driver was convicted in court of failing to stop at the stop sign, he came and spoke with me and my friend who was in the courtroom with me. 

He let us know that he felt badly that I was still not healed, after being injured.

Plus, he let us know that he had been taking pills to stay awake over 30 hours, and had stopped and had three or four (3 or 4) beers.

Had he been checked by the police for drinking?  NO!

Did that upset me?  YES!

Please know that I eventually forgave him, even though I never saw him, or spoke with him, ever again.

Did I only forgive that drunk driver, who the police didn't check and/or charge him for?  No.

I also forgave the police.  Why did I feel I needed to forgive the police?

I had gone to the police station and asked why that drunk driver hadn't been checked and/or charged for drunk driving, knowing that the truck driver had admitted regarding his drunk driving.  The policeman laughed and said about how he felt badly for truck drivers, for he believed that truck drivers needed to be supported, because they work so much.

Sigh...

I must admit that at that time, it truly upset me.  After all, I mentioned to that policeman that he must have been happier that I... as a school bus driver, had my whole life changed, due to the injuries I suffered from.

Like I previously said, I did forgive them.  Even though I didn't feel they were in support of me.

Thinking of that made me think of Luke 6:27, "But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,".

Amen!  But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,.

Did I love those people that I felt were enemies, for destroying my life... even though I lived?

Yes, I did. 

I forgave them, as I mentioned.

And, God blesses me.

Why?

I did, what He wanted me to do.


Until next time...
