a long hiatus, but here is seven –
Today I resolve to forgive.
I will remember not only that I have been forgiven,
but that I am in desperate need of forgiveness.
When I am wronged, I will remember that I have wronged other people unintentionally,
and will not assume the intentions of others are malicious.
I will attempt to be understanding.
I will treat those who dislike me with kindness,
those who have hurt me with patience.
I will not demand repayment for past wrongs.
I will not require penitence for my pain.
I will not hold a grudge,
or perpetuate prejudice.
And when it is hard to forgive, I will look to the example of Christ,
who, as he was lifted up, prayed for those who pierced his side.
