ChooseTo Forgive



Visualize in your head

All the conflicts you have to encounter,

And as the clock ticks,

You will believe with NO wonder,

The times when you have to struggle,

And the moments when you are lost

Are well worth the cost,

They keep your dreams alive

When You opt to forgive!

Gravity and light are relative,

Wins and loses are temporary,

Issues and problems are resolvable,

Pains and wounds are curable,

And the rich and the poor are exchangeable.

Experiences and wealth can be gained,

Knowledge and skills can be learned.

Choose to forgive,

Your turn things around,

What a relief!

*****
Happy Monday!

jingle, this is so true! forgiveness isn't always easy but let it speak two things into your life...the one who can forgive is the one who is most mature. and then, being unforgiving can build up walls of bitterness that will surround us and eventually imprison us, leaving no room to dance, stand upright, or sing as loud as we can with joy!
enjoy a wonderful monday, my friend :)

This is very important: especially when you live with children.

I pray for a gentle tongue, daily...I need it.

Sometimes just saying the words "I'm sorry" yourself can make forgiving someone else much easier.

Very nice.. like a poem that makes you think

Dom* said...

What makes you think of pain and despair?
Please make allowance and also do care
If you hurt ones heart that is so true
This only makes their feelings very blue
So to make ones happiness and live
Always if you hurt someone please forgive

enjoy Jingle and Happy Tuesday(+)

I have learned that forgiving someone is the best medicine in the world... I t brings back life and happiness and at times even cures addictions...
beautifully written :)

Birdie said...

how would you forgive to someone who did hurt your own child? I can forgive almost everything but this one, I cannot. Maybe it's my prison but I cannot... :-( love
