My husband had an affair. The “other woman” was beyond cruel to me for a very long time. So many negative emotions flooded me for long towards her. I made a decision to not only give them all to Jesus but to reach out to her and share His love. I purchased a card with scripture on it explaining forgiveness. I wrote a long note inside the card not only proclaiming I forgive her, but WHY. I shared Jesus. Talked about how His grace and dying on the cross was the ultimate forgiveness for me and I wanted to walk with him and forgive her as He does. I apologized for any harsh words or difficulty I caused her in her life and repented towards her. I shared how beautiful Jesus was and how he changes lives. I invited her to church. I also enjoy, as a hobby, making crafts out of plastic canvas and yarn. I sewed her a cross with what I know her favorite colors to be and placed it in the card and mailed it to her. I shared Jesus with her, how He changed my life, my heart and how He is the ultimate good. God took the anger, sadness, and resentment from my heart as I’ve been praying for, and he filled it with love and only He knows- but hopefully reached this daughter of God in His way.

    I was in your shoes years ago and did the same thing. Forgiving and letting go is so relieving. You got this.
