    Thank you , hon!! I had major tears streaming down at the end of this most heart felt article. I know that there is an eternally significant reason for forgiveness and I know from experience that it is not instantaneously achieved for me. I am spending a lifetime of continuous work toward understanding the COMPLETE picture Father has in mind when we are unwillingly subjected to those who abuse. I am working toward remembering "When ye have done it to the least of these..." of US it is required to forgive all....

    Thank you for your story. I can't begin to imagine how hard it would be to forgive someone for taking the life of a loved-one (either intentionally, or by accident). Most all of us have stories of things that occurred early in our lives that were often-times traumatic and life-changing. It may have been abandonment, abuse, the loss of a loved-one. The important point I've been reminded of from this article, is that as we move forward in our lives, we must leave these experiences behind, and not allow them to define who we are, or cloud our thinking and judgment. Again, thank you!
