But what about forgiveness?

(NOTE: I feel almost like I should apologize for blogging so much within the past two days, but I am not going to because I really need to get these out before I lose them.)

 

A photograph I took from the back of the mini-van while Mom was driving us to a Red Barn Harvest Party. 😀

And so the blog actually begins–

I’ve been blogging a lot lately about community, and why it matters so much, because it has really been on my mind this year. I have always been community oriented, but things in my life are changing and making me that much more aware of the world around me. I have talked about fear, love, change, anger, mistakes, and vulnerability relating to community but I have been asking myself “What about forgiveness?”

“I could NEVER, ever, no way, no how, no matter HOW much they plead, forgive them for what they did to me/my family/this country/my shirt/that animal/etc.” 
I will do my best to forgive them, after all, I have made mistakes in my life as well.”

Forgiveness is vital to moving past struggles in a community. Forgiveness is what has to happen when lines are crossed, whether there is an apology or not. A lack of forgiveness builds up anger, prejudice, and loneliness in a persons heart.

That being said, I have some forgiving to do.

Happy Adventures,
Burkie

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
