“That was a long time ago,” replied the man when I inquired about his military service. Actually, his veteran cap led to my question. His response prompted my thinking about how the past enters the present. Although healthy individuals do not live in the past, I consider it healthy for us to think about childhood and other life periods. Inviting facets of the past to enter our present adds to our awareness and wholeness. We also need the freedom to choose which things we leave in the past. "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go” (Psalm 32:8a).
