This week I'm thankful for the timely reminder on forgiveness. A lesson I've learned, only to forget time and again. Recently a neighbour has again caused me to hold grudges and misgivings. How heavy laden one's heart is when we hold such grievances. As such in my case too.
So this week I've been reminded again through these excerpts I've received :
We must be quick to forgive because harboring unforgiveness in our hearts can be compared to drinking poison and hoping the other person dies from that poison.
We hurt ourselves more than anyone else when we refuse to forgive those who have hurt or done something wrong against us.
Be encouraged to have a forgiving heart knowing that you will benefit far more by forgiving than you ever can by holding a grudge in your heart.
I'm also thankful for Happy. I've certainly learned a lot about forgiving from her many a times. It's amazing how our pets do not hold grudges against us and continue to love us the way we are. We have a lot to learn from them.
Today marks the 6th year since Happy came into my life. I'm truly thankful for this furry bundle of joy.
Once again, I'm thankful for these words of wisdom that we are able to impart to the humans.
Hope everyone is having a thankful time too.
