Words...
flyyyy by.
Accusations?
Tears?
Feelings?

Yes, quite so.

But what to do,
-at misinterpretation?

Rectification?
Retreat?

No, never retreat.

To retreat,
is to quit.
To quit,
is to admit defeat.
To admit defeat,
is a burden carried,
for life.

And I ask this:
Why carry,
an unnecessary burden,
when-

*forgiveness,*

is another option?

*Group HUG*

Peace is a lofty goal but nigh impossible since each person has views and opinions that will conflict with those of others.

Forgiveness is another matter all together and one I am just coming to understand myself. Forgivenees is not easy at all, yet such I am striving to accomplish.

Thank you everyone for the support!

SD-Got it and granted.

Denise-a good message, but will it be heeded?

K-hugs gratefully accepted and returned!

Dream-then I dream lofty dreams. Agreed it is not an easy thing to grant, and sometimes it is not an easy thing to ask for.

Isis- (aww, shucks!)

Michael- thank you, and may I be granted devine forgiveness.

Some people don't retreat....they make strategic withdrawals.

Forgiveness is the one of the most difficult acts to accomplish, if it is done right. I hope to manage that some day.

Forgivness is something I strive for in my life but is a difficult task. Ball said it correctly, it is divine. Strategic withdrawals (depending on the circumstances) can create more bitterness and pain. It takes strength of character to face up to your mistakes and ask for forgivness.

These are just my thoughts. Thankyou for allowing me to state them.
