Forgiveness....

Friday, January 25, 2013

I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Having a bit of difficulty with people who just can't give STUDENTS second/third/fourth chances... if we TEACHERS can't forgive students for bad choices and help them learn from them...how can we expect society to? (Forgiveness does not mean condone)!!

    So true. We all make mistakes and we all need to be shown mercy.

    I agree that forgiveness should be forgetting the trespass. If a person grows from the realization that they did something wrong and agrees not to repeat it.

Psalm

Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me.-Psalm 25:7

If we want to be forgiven should we not then forgive others?

Crayons...

Monday, January 21, 2013

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.- Anon

Love this one!!!

    They do harmonize to work together for beautiful colors. Yellow and green make a beautiful blue. Red and blue make a lovely purple. When we work together we can make wonderful things happen! We need to work with our bodies with good food for fuel, not against them with junk food and expect anything good! emoticon
