Burnt-offering and sin-offering you have not required; and so I said behold I come.  There is no debt to be paid, no period of pain to be suffered nor any expectation of beating ourselves up with the “what if’s”. Examine the damages only for the purpose of rebuilding. I don’t remember the day I realized that there was absolutely nothing I could do to change what has already happened. However, I do remember how I felt. It felt like putting down heavy bags I’d been carrying or better yet, taking off a pair of shoes that were hurting my feet. Wow! It was that easy? Perhaps not always, but I did finally understand that yesterday is done, tomorrow hasn’t come and it’s’ what we do today that  really matters.
