In Memory Box Secrets, Sheila Peterson-Brook’s greatest fear is that she’s going to parent just as her mother and father raised her. No, she wasn’t abused, physically, but she wasn’t loved either. Sheila spent much of her life closing off her heart, because it hurt to much to feel, but her new-found faith is helping break open her heart.
I love how “Family Tree” by Matthew West says that our family tree isn’t our legacy, that what happened yesterday doesn’t define who we are, and that God can break the chains binding us.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
2 Corinthians 5:17
