To Forgive

To forgive is to put down your fifty pound pack
after a ten mile climb up a mountain.
To forgive is to fall into a chair
after a fifteen mile marathon.
To forgive is to set a prisoner free
and discover that the prisoner was you.
To forgive is to reach back into your hurting past
and recreate it in your memory so that you can begin again.
To forgive is to dance to the beat of God's forgiving heart.
It is to ride the crest of Love's strongest wave.
Lewis b. Smedes


  1. To forgive can be the hardest thing to do, yet the easiest way to be released from a prison...

  2. Hey, I love this piece...
    As Jaycee said, forgiveness sometimes can be the hardest thing to do. To forgive is to free ourselves from the corset of grief, of pain and usher us into the realms of freedom. To forgive is to be free from the invisible walls that encloses us in when we don't. Thanks for sharing.. lovely piece.. Have a great weekend.. x
