April 8th 2003 was the worst day of my entire life.

Before that point it had already been a major spiritual celebration, but it was a celebration of progress culminating in a set of spiritual statues on April 8th 2002.

But on April 8th 2003 I had a moments indescretion that a life time of prudance can never erase

Worse still April 8th 2005 my Step-Grandfather died.

Its a Horrible, Horrible date...I wish I could go through an April that doesnt have a day marked 8th.

Well it is natural to forever mark a date to specific events in our lives and to dread those which remind us of sad and painful memories. Maybe what we should do is make a happy memory on that dreaded date. Do something positive today, something good in loving memory of your step-grandfather. As to the other, I'm sure you've asked for forgiveness and it's been given. Sometimes I think it's harder to forgive ourselves, but thankfully GOD has provided a way....

May you have a blessed day today, Dave.
