Life Provides What is Needed to Grow

Life has a tendency to provide a person with what they need in order to grow. Our beliefs, and what we value in life, provide the roadmap for the type of life that we experience.

Forgiveness is an Expression of Love

Forgiveness is not a feeling; it is a commitment. It is a choice to show mercy, not to hold the offense up against the offender. Forgiveness is an expression of love. “I love you. I care about you, and I choose to forgive you. Even though my feelings of hurt may linger, I will not allow what has happened to come between us. I hope that we can learn from this experience.
