“Forgiveness is the giving, and so the receiving, of life” GEORGE MACDONALD It is easy to talk about forgiving, but much more difficult to actually carry it out. In forgiving, we let go of the resentment and blame that has taken hold as a result of hurt. Often perceived as a sign of weakness or giving in, to forgive actually takes great strength. From where do we receive such strength? From the one who loves us with an unconditional and everlasting love. Everyone needs forgiveness…and everyone needs to forgive. Forgiveness heals. Within these pages you will discover how forgiveness, offered and received, leads to a transforming peace.
