There is a difference between like and love, wrong and right. Never run if you’re not ready to take a step. And never forgive, if you’re not ready to forget.

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.
I must admit, I’m enjoying the weekly celebrate the small things. (wink) it’s quite liberating. Thanks for the opportunity to share.
Yay, I made posting before midnight. Praise The Lord.
A quick reminder I write when I can because my day job pays the bills and provides food to microwave. (smile) Got to eat! This week, I celebrate forgiveness. Forgiveness is a choice. Seventy times seven? Yup, it’s a choice.
Forgiveness is powerful because it keeps a heart and mind open. No coulda, woulda and shoulda replays. No bitterness. No resentment.
Forgiveness can work daily to release and renew the mind to move forward. Sometimes, it is, what it is; until it’s not.
Forgiveness helps to listen to the words and not react to the tone spoken. The Holy Spirit and spiritual fruit is required because the flesh can react to the tone.
So I celebrate choosing forgiveness as a beautiful release of emotions not meant to be carried.
Abundant blessings, my friends, enjoy your weekend and keep the faith. (smile)
Your comments or thoughts on forgiveness are welcome.
