Reflections on Forgiveness

The first time I remember choosing forgiveness I was on the Monkey Bars feeling very accomplished when a rock sailed through the air and cutting my forehead open.  A contrite little boy came running saying, “I’m sorry!”

“It’s the hardest thing to give away, And the last thing on your mind today… Forgiveness”

Hi, I’m Sally Barton and these are my Reflections on Forgiveness

As years go by innocence gives way to something more serious; gossip hurt but my friend’s shunning was most painful and years later when she asked for forgiveness…

“Even when the jury and the judge say you gotta right
To hold a grudge It’s the whisper in your ear saying ‘Set It Free’

What joy!  To offer grace and experience the healing power of forgiveness.  This Thanksgiving I am most grateful for you, my family and Radio Shine.  I thank our God for mercy and freedom provided by forgiveness…

“So show me how to see what Your mercy sees
Help me now to give what You gave to me…Forgiveness.” -Matthew West, “Forgiveness”

Matthew 18: 21-22  Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
