Afterwords: Give the Gift of Forgiveness


  • Forgiveness is a freeway. Un-forgiveness is a dead-end street.

  • Forgiveness is being liberated. Un-forgiveness is being locked up. 

  • In the “emotional court” of life un-forgiveness is a life sentence in a prison of our own making. 

  • Choose forgiveness and we will have chosen freedom. Choose un-forgiveness and we will have chosen imprisonment not only for life but from living life.

  •  Our flaws, failures and foibles find forgiveness, favor and fulfillment in Our Father. 

  • It’s not about the haves and have-nots; it’s about the gives and give-nots, the forgives and forgive-nots. 

  • Give and Get - Forgive and Forget 

  • Life is about giving and forgiving. 

  • Give everything our very best and forgive ourselves and others all the rest.
