Forgiveness


'Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heal that has crushed it.' ~ Mark Twain

'What could you want that
forgiveness cannot give?
Do you want peace? Forgiveness offers it.
Do you want happiness, a quiet mind,
a certainty of purpose,
and a sense of worth and beauty
that transcends the world?
Do you want care and safety,
and warmth of sure protection always?
Do you want a quietness that cannot be disturbed,
a gentleness that cannot be hurt,
a deep abiding comfort
and a rest so perfect it can never be upset?
All this forgiveness offers you.
You who want peace
can find it only by complete forgiveness.' ~ A Course in Miracles

Today I choose to be in a space of forgiveness, a soothing balm for my soul. A way to turn the page.
