I think we all realize that forgiving is important for our well-being but
but some of us wake up one day in our lives like I did this week and
realize that forgiving is everything. Without out forgiving there is no
grace. I wanted to say this and dedicate a post to it because if you are
on the fence about forgiving, get off of it and forgive and ask for
forgiveness for yourself. Grace follows.

You are SO right my friend. Unforgiveness eats you up alive and before you know it, one is a bitter soul. But forgiveness IS everything, and is required daily. I too was pondering on this the other day and remembered Christ's words about forgiving your neighbor 7 X 70 times a exponential equation here that baffles the mind,but once practices, liberates the heart. No other way to live.

I LOVE YOUR ROSE! It looks like peppermint to me!

Enjoy your weekend, Suz! Anita

Such a beautiful rose, Susan and such an important reminder that forgiveness frees our soul and let's us live without anger or regret.
I, too, have been having to remind myself a lot lately and sometimes it's a struggle to find your way there but it's so worth it.
Thank you!

Dear, dear friend,

I just saw your comment, and first of all, I don't know what to do because you are about the 10th person to tell me they are not getting my posts in email! I have no idea where to fix this! Thank you for coming to visit and to confirm to me that this email failure may explain why some people don't come to visit anymore!

But what concerns me is YOU. ARE YOU OK??? You just got some bad news??????? I pray for your peace, your total peace dearest Suz....please be well. I am glad my post was comforting for you. That is my hope and desire, but most of all, I hope for the well-being of all. HUGS.

Forgiveness ...Grace. Such meaningful words. We can even try and forgive ourselves. No one has to be perfect.

Your words are as beautiful as the rose that opens itself to the world.
