Forgiveness is a decision. We decide to cut off the bitter root and plant a seed of love. We cannot blame ourselves if it does not grow; sometimes the other party has poisoned the soil too much. But we must keep the bitter roots cut and plant more and more seeds of love. Forgiveness begins when we make that choice; long before we see the results.
Love this! my eddie says something like this to me all the time- wish we could have gotten together sooner so we could have had more time together, and i tell him way back i was the faithful wife and likely would not have cheated on ----- if i had we would have been the scandal of the neighborhood
There will be a times in your life when you have to choose between being loved and being respected. Always pink being respected, that love without respect was always fleeting--- but that respect could grow into real, lasting love.
