Forgiveness

Forgiveness is amazing... when it's given. It's wonderful when it's received. It changes us.



But if thou dost continue to beat thyself up and weep bitter tears and cover thyself with sackcloth and ashes and eat worms...


well... you get the idea.


Thou must leave it all at the Cross and not pick it back up again.

(Hmmm...I think I've read this somewhere before... )


Mercy and grace and forgiveness are wonderful things, and I wonder if we even realize the things God can do when we sincerely extend mercy to each other.

Tough lesson -- yes.

Lesson learned.


(At least til next time.)

Humbly,
Jennifer
