Sabbath Keeping

~ January's wolf moon ~
"For as the heavens are high above the earth, 
So great is his mercy toward those who fear him.
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has he removed our transgressions from us."

"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong."
~ Mahatma Gandhi
"Forgiveness is not something we do for other people.
It's something we do for ourselves
To move on."
~ author unknown ~
"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it."
~ Mark Twain
"Forgive and Forget
NOT
Revenge and Regret"
"Forgiveness is the economy of the heart... forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits." ~ Hannah More ~
"Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself."
"When you forgive, you in no way change the past, but you sure do change the future."
~ Bernard Meltzer ~
"I'm going to forgive you
Because I know what it's like
To mess up and ask for forgiveness."
~ author unknown ~
"Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive."
~ C. S. Lewis
"Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes and move on." ~ Les Brown ~
"Forgiveness is like faith. You have to keep reviving it." ~ Mason Cooley ~
"Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast."
~ Marlene Dietrich
"Move on,
It's a chapter in the past
But don't close the book
Just turn the page."
~ author unknown ~
"Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness." ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr. ~
"Life is an adventure in forgiveness." 

"Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another 
whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else. 
You must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you."

  6. Goodness, I nearly hesitate to read your Sabbath posts, Sandra. You hit the mark every time! I can't keep up- I'm still processing the challenge from the week before! I know it's God hitting the mark, but I'm very grateful that you are such an open channel of His words.
