Chapter 7 Page 28, Book 21

Love is an endless act of forgiveness.

Peter Ustinov

July 28 - endless love 

There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness with without love.

Bryant H. McGill

When we love we can’t help but forgive someone for what they do.  It’s unconditional love that makes the difference.  Because that what love does, love forgives.  

Always love one another.

Love forgives everything.  Love is always trusting and hoping and never gives up.

! Corinthians 13:7

Forgiveness is the ultimate form of love.  The lock of love produces hate, resentment and intense frustration.  Even breathing issues, sometimes.  Forgiveness is for Love what the heart is for the body, the center of existence   

Forgiveness may be the hardest part of any relationship, but is absolutely necessary.  To forgive doesn’t excuse the other person of what they did, it releases you from anger bitterness and retaliation  If we don’t have forgiveness in our hearts, love will be unable to grow.  Love forgives and unites.

Never gorget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer and forgiveness.

H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.

Forgiveness is hard to explain and understand. WE CANNOT erase memories that are 'branded' in our minds. That is NEAR impossible. BUT we can KNOW how we feel, and IF we have truly forgiven...
Tough life requires forgiveness to move on.

I have forgiven when I didn't want to forgive. NOT forgiving means that you can be eaten up inside with anger and hate. Great post. xo Diana

I like what Blogger friend Victor suggested someone do about his inability to forgive: "Ask God to forgive them on your behalf. Then give it over to Him and go about your life."
Sometimes self-forgiveness is the hardest.

Learning that forgiveness isn't about what someone did or said but about how we deal with it we forgive for our own health
