30 Days of Gratitude: Forgiveness

Day 26

When we finally let go and die to our own expectations, hopes and disappointment, and anger, we get an opportunity to forgive someone and offer them a second chance.  I am thankful for the second (and third, fourth, fifth, millionth) chances I have been given.  It is also a sacred gift to offer forgiveness to another.  Deserved or not, letting go of the heavy burden of holding a grudge or even simply allowing God to bring justice--whether you're a witness to it or not, is freeing beyond words.  

We like to be forgiven.  Offering forgiveness is also a gift.
