"When deep injury is done to us, we never recover until we forgive...
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future."

"Bitterness imprisons life; love releases it." - Harry Emerson Fosdick

"You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well."  -  Lewis Smedes

"Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?”  Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times."  (Matthew 18:21-22)

Ugh....that's a lot of forgiveness. It's so much easier to just stay mad. Thanks for the reminder Jean, even when I don't want to hear it.
