Everyone has their own story of mercy. Everyone has a story of mercy that might inspire them. A story they will never forget. In my case the story I’m telling you today took place most of my childhood. It all started in in the year 2006. My mother was taking me and my brother to her home country, Dominican Republic. My father didn’t go due to his job requirements, so it was just me, my brother and my mom. When we got back from our two week vacation. Everything went back to how it always was. My father was a pastor at a church we owned. My mother cooked the perfect meals and my brother and I were little angels everywhere we went. My point is everything was perfect. A couple months later I noticed things started changing. My mother didn’t have …show more content…
That never worked thought. He would only change for a couple months and go back to his ways. So after years I’m now about 11 years old.

She continuously let him into our home and even now that he still doesn’t bother to look for us, she still forgives him. She showed and still shows him mercy. This story is one I will never forget, one that will continuously inspire me and hopefully one day inspire my kids and teach them that you should always show others mercy, because one day that will be your story. That will be the story that inspires you to push on in life and go after what you believe in. This is my
