ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FRIDAY, JUNE 26TH, 2015
89 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 5:57 am
Sunset: 9:07 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today Forgiveness Day. It is a time to forgive and to be forgiven. The world will be a better place for this day. Troubles and disputes should be ended on Forgiveness Day and people should get along with each other again. It would be a nice idea to call somebody, whom you have not spoken to in a while because you were too angry. Forgiving is a relieving process and not only on Forgiveness Day everyone should do that from time to time.
Note: Global Forgiveness Day is held on August 27th. International Forgiveness Day- the first Sunday of August.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.
Forgiveness is a fundamental part of my faith. Being angry and holding grudges is a waste of time. Life is too short. There are truly so many better things that we can spend on time on.
There is a lot of anger in this world and most of us come into contact with it in some form daily. Think how much nicer it would be if there was forgiveness shared instead.
I always think about the Lord’s prayer when it comes to forgiveness. 'And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.’ I believe that in order to be forgiven, we must forgive.
Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.
William Arthur Ward
It’s been pretty quiet around my house this week. I’ve spent time just doing the every day normal things. After the grand time with all my children last week, it does seem a bit of a let down, but on the bright side normal days are wonderful too !
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
