With my eyes closed I can still see us together in my memories. I was very angry at you for a long time, but that feeling has mellowed. In my heart now is etched a permanent reverence for the great love we shared. That we lasted only for a time makes it no less remarkable. J.B.
Forgiving is love’s toughest work, and love’s biggest risk.
If you twist it into something it was never meant to be,
It can make you a doormat or an insufferable manipulator.
Forgiving seems almost unnatural.
Our sense of fairness tells us
People should pay for the wrong they do.
But forgiving is love’s power to break nature’s rule.
Lewis B. Smedes
