I apologize to those that I have wronged and I ask for forgiveness.
To those that I have been wronged by, I forgive you because I truly love you so deeply.
I hope my actions speak louder than my words, by far.

Forgiveness and Love
When you love somebody you forgive them. I’ve learned an immense amount in my life so far especially over the last few years. One thing that keeps me at peace and in a loving state with people is when you can forgive them for the wrongs that have occurred, you can keep loving them and can even more. If you’ve wronged them then for sure you apologize and absolutely ask for forgiveness. Of course, you don’t keep yourself in harm’s way, sometimes you have to forgive and depart. Forgiveness also doesn’t have much to do with the other person, but it is what’s in your heart that matters. It’s about keeping your side of the street clean. I was talking with my potential liver donation producer friend and he said, You can’t just immediately choose to forgive someone and it just happens. In the very basic of terms, yes, you can. But sure, if you dissect it, it can take time, but you just reaffirm the forgiveness if it pops up into your brain. I was discussing it with my Mom this morning and she thinks of it as God’s test. How well do we handle a situation and how well do we come through it. In part, it is the GOLDEN RULE. Treat others as you want to be treated or Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. She didn’t even have to forgive the man that killed her first husband, her soul mate. She was saddened for all the other people that were killed by that man that day. She wasn’t raised with contempt, hate, or anger, She was raised with compassion, kindness and love. So even at the thought of her husband of eleven months death, she held no ill will, even from that horrific moment. When we hold onto unforgiveness, it only eats you up and consumes your energy, time, and thoughts. It doesn’t do anything to the other person, it only harms yourself if you cannot forgive. Clarify your heart, soul, and mind through God. Then when someone asks for your forgiveness, you give it to them. There are times when we tell someone we forgive them but they don’t actually know why you’re doing it and things may get dicey and it brings everything back up to the surface. You’ll know what’s best, if you don’t, ask the person you counsel with and pray about it. But many times the person won’t know you forgave them for an incident because they aren’t in your life anymore, but for your peace of mind and full positive heart, it’s important to forgive across the board as God has forgiven us the same way. Sometimes, there is the statement forgive and forget or forgive but doesn’t forget. At times, not forgetting per sae but be aware of that things can happen and don’t let the issue come again but be aware to diffuse or direct it in a better direction. As I have been forgiven, I therefore forgive and also ask for your forgiveness.

Jeremiah 10:23-24
23 O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself;
It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.
24 O LORD, correct me, but with justice;
Not in Your anger, lest You bring me to nothing.

Seek the lord and his strength... Psalms 105:4 (for me)
