Thoughts from Stephen, Words on Forgiveness

Good morning,

Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.
--Marlene Dietrich

How does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow over the circumstance instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry for the person rather than angry with him. You tend to have nothing left to say about it all.
--Clarissa Pinkola Estes

There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.
--Bryant H. McGill

Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.
--Garrison Keillor

Today carefully look around in your mind for signs of things not forgiven. We are the first and greatest casualty of our resentments.

Turn to love for the ability to cook breakfast fresh and new each day.

Kindest regards,

My friend Stephen has the gift of inspiration, I get emails almost every morning and with his permission I am honored to share some of his thoughtful words with you. The purpose of his writing is “to share my strength and hope for my friends and their friends.”  it is my hope you will enjoy these,   Teri
