A gift appropriate for Sunday

One word that takes no money,
it requires letting go of being right,
it requires letting go of being angry,
it requires expecting nothing in return.
It requires a lot of effort,
including prayer,
to a very willing Heavenly Father.
The gift of
is really a gift to three.
The one you forgive.
Your Heavenly Father.

"Forgiveness is the economy of the heart...
forgiveness saves the expense of anger,
the cost of hatred,
the waste of spirits."
Hannah More

"He that cannot forgive others
breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself;
for every man has need to be forgiven."
Thomas Fuller

thanks for this one. Dave and I are building a house while I'm pregnant, and it's pushing us to our limits. Maybe you would like to come and be our marriage counselor? :) j/k
