Recovering by forgiving

As We Forgive

As We Forgive (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Two short quotes for you today to wrap up the week on forgiveness –


A fun one by Oscar Wilde – “Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” –


And this deep truth from Alan Paton, “When a deep injury is done to us, we never recover until we forgive.”


Think that through – something done to us – something we didn’t like or that hurt or was unfair – the only way to recover – is to forgive – and it’s in our power!


Forgiveness as a theme this week has helped me – to forgive myself and to forgive others and I know that I can learn even more about forgiveness and so I’m grateful for this week and know that when we become more aware about anything we grow.



Friday funny
Jake was dying. His wife sat at his bedside. 
He looked up and said weakly: 
‘I have something I must confess.’ 
‘There’s no need to, ‘his wife replied. 
‘No,’ he insisted, 
‘I want to die in peace. 
I slept with your sister, your best friend, 
her best friend, and your mother!’ 
‘I know,’ she replied. 
‘Now just rest and let the poison work.’ 


And here is a person who cannot forgive!       


You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!


Blessings, Shawna
