"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

As I wove the word compassion I asked myself- How much am I willing to give to someone who has wronged me? And, how does this reflect how I comprehend Christ's love for me?

  1. Interesting thought, Ronda. I often find that I am more willing to show compassion for others, even when they've wronged me, than I am willing to show myself. I guess I am my own toughest judge and critic.

  2. Self forgiveness Kim?! I don't know if the bible says I need to do it.....I hope not because I'm not there....thanks for that thought. Ronda

  3. When God forgives us for our sins, who are we not to forgive ourselves? Forgiveness with the intention of mending our ways is the path to moving on, putting the past behind us. God forgives and doesn't remember! How hard it is for us to forgive and forget, but we can do it!!!

    1. Hi Ruth I think I am only beginning to grasp the infinite amount of love God has for each one of us. Yet - too often I have only a finite love for my fellow humans and myself. Thank you for sharing that insight. Ronda
