"In childhood, I understood the concept of admitting and apologizing when I did something wrong (though I was a well-behaved little girl) and I always felt better when my parents forgave me, showing me their love. Here's what I didn't get: I didn't understand the connections between repentance and God's forgiveness, and how it all worked... Next, I wasn't viewing God as a "Father" who would really forgive us our sins... Let me share with you what some Canandaiguans have learned about forgiveness..." - Messenger Post (Canandaigua, NY)
Forgiveness - The Greatest Gift
Words to Warm The Heart
"If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility." -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Forgiveness is the greatest gift that you can give.
"If we wish to have true peace, we must give it a soul. The soul of peace is love, which for us believers comes from the LOVE of GOD and expresses itself in LOVE for MEN." Paul VI
"If the basis of peace is God, the secret of peace is TRUST." J.N. Figgis
"All men desire peace, but very few desire those things that make for peace." Thomas a Kempis
"Dale Carnegie knew the techniques for "positive thinking" and "self confidence." He could even teach people to overcome worry with his techniques, but in the end, peace eluded him and he committed suicide. In a world filled with causes for worry and anxiety, we need something tougher than "positive thinking" or even "possibility thinking." We need the peace of God standing guard over our hearts and minds." Jerry W. McCant
"Forgiving those who hurt us is the key to personal peace." G. Weatherly
"The fruit of the Spirit is . . . peace." Galatians 5:22
