I think everything worked out the way it was supposed to. Mark’s happier. I’m sober. There are still phone calls to be made people I need to say something to. But everyone from Creed who I’ve offended or hurt I ask for their forgiveness.
I love my children. That will never change. I have prayed to them for forgiveness and hope that they will forgive me. I never meant to hurt them!!
I learned a long time ago that some people would rather die than forgive. It’s a strange truth but forgiveness is a painful and difficult process. It’s not something that happens overnight. It’s an evolution of the heart.
I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose again and that’s my belief. I still don’t know what ‘Christian’ means. I’m a follower of Christ but I keep making a whole bunch of mistakes. And I thank God for forgiveness.
He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself for every man has need to be forgiven.
Forgiveness is the final form of love.
Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost and was found is saved from being lost again.
Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.
A mistake is always forgivable rarely excusable and always unacceptable.
Forgiveness is about empowering yourself rather than empowering your past.
I think it is important that we rebuild an atmosphere of forgiveness and civility in every aspect of our lives.
I think the first step is to understand that forgiveness does not exonerate the perpetrator. Forgiveness liberates the victim. It’s a gift you give yourself.
We cannot embrace God’s forgiveness if we are so busy clinging to past wounds and nursing old grudges.
We think that forgiveness is weakness but it’s absolutely not it takes a very strong person to forgive.
