A Christmas Homecoming
...because it's never too late to be forgiven
by Maryann Diorio

About the Book:

Seven Christmases have passed since Sonia Pettit last heard from her daughter Jody. Since Jody's departure, Sonia's world has been turned upside down. Her husband has died of a broken heart, and her son, bitter over his sister's destructive actions, has become rebellious. Her greatest desire is to have her family together at Christmas, but after what Jody has put them all through, can Sonia truly forgive her daughter? Jody Pettit O'Dair ran away to experience a life of adventure and excitement, but since her departure, her world has been turned upside down. She's been abandoned by the man she met and married, lost her job, and is unable to care for her two children. With nowhere else to turn, this prodigal daughter begins the long journey home and prays she will be welcomed after walking away so long ago. Will Jody find forgiveness in the arms of her family as easily as she received it from God?

My Review: 

This short story is a great reminder of the Gift we all received on Christmas Day, Jesus, and the purpose for which He came; forgiveness. How many times have we had someone offend us, walk on us, or make us feel flat out rotten? How many times have we been quick to forgive them? Sometimes we fight between what we know is right and how we feel, leaving us on emotional roller-coaster. Unforgiveness can be deadly to our spirits, among other things.

Jody Pettit O'Dair's family has been fighting this battle for seven long years. Although this fight has most certainly taken its toll on each person in her family, they are reminded of God’s grace and forgiveness, and how He can use the worst situations to bring the best outcome for all involved.

If you need a little reminder that God is quick to forgive us for all the wrong or hurtful things we have done to others, or if you’re in need of a little push to forgive those who have wronged you, I recommend this short story. It is the gentle reminder we all need at one point in our lives or another: To forgive even when we feel it is impossible.
