Forgiveness

15 Aug

I want to live with a forgiving spirit – always. I have seen the spirit of bitterness and unforgiveness destroy the lives and joy of my mother and grandmother (and countless others). I want to be strong enough to openly engage with others without punishing them for my past.

    Just pure truth.
    Pure of spirit.
    Thank you for posting this – I, too, am on the path of forgiveness, but it’s Radical Forgiveness and I would love to recommend a great book to you by Colin Tipping called “Radical Forgiveness”
    It is changing my life! Blessings, Vicki
    P.S. Awareness is the first sign of change, you are aware of what this inability did to the generation before you, next will come your willingness to change it for yourself and your own children, next comes the courage – it’s all good, keep writing! We are reading and growing righ alongside of you, too.
