Reflections Of Forgiveness


To err is human; to forgive, divine.  ~Alexander Pope

I truly believe that forgiveness is like love, it comes from within. Like love, you cannot forgive someone before first forgiving yourself!

Thank you Debbie  for creating this forgiveness challenge“ForgivingFridays” which is a weekly invitation for you to take action to forgive today (or any day!) and post about it on your blog or social media, using #ForgivingFridays and #Iforgive.

Examples of what you can post: forgiveness statements, a creative expression (poetry, photography, video, etc) that represents forgiveness, something that inspires forgiving for you, or sharing what you did today to forgive.

Here are some images I found that for me express forgiveness

Here are the guidelines for this challenge:

  • Write a post to share your contribution to forgiveness.
  • Please tag your post with #ForgivingFridays (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post (Debbie’s post), so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating your own form of forgiving, of loving YOU!!

  1. Etta D., this is such a beautiful sharing of your wisdom and experience with forgiveness. Your photos truly speak 1000 words.

    The photo of the Buddha reminds me of a great quote: “You can not travel the path until you have become the path itself.” ~Buddha

    I’m certainly learning how to become the path through showing up and opening my heart ! Your blog post helped me do that this morning. Thanks, Etta D.
    Love and blessings to you, my friend — Debbie

    1. You’re welcome Debbie. Great quote from Buddha 🙂

      It’s amazing what represent forgiveness to different people. I have a friend who said the Ocean represents forgiveness because each time the wave hits the shore washes away everything and brings in something new. I never looked at that way before.
      xxx and blessings to your as well!
