To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness. Robert Muller 

Before you can live a part of you has to die. You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change the past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time or outcomes from their choices or yours. When you finally recognize that truth, then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free. Shannon L. Alder

True forgiveness is when you can say, ‘Thank you for that experience.’

After a particularly poor game of golf, a popular club member skipped the clubhouse and started to go home. As he was walking to the parking lot to get his car, a policeman stopped him and asked, “Did you tee off on the sixteenth hole about twenty minutes ago?” 

“Yes,” the golfer responded. 

“Did you happen to hook your ball so that it went over the trees and off the course?” 

“Yes, I did. How did you know?” he asked. 

“Well,” said the policeman very seriously, “Your ball flew out onto the highway and crashed through a driver’s windshield. The car went out of control, crashing into five other cars and a fire truck. The fire truck couldn’t make it to the fire, and the building burned down. So, what are you going to do about it?” 

The golfer thought it over carefully and responded… 

“I think I’ll close my stance a little bit, tighten my grip and lower my right thumb.

Thursday’s Quizzler is……….

Once upon a time there was a dad and 3 kids. When the kids were adults, the dad was old and Death came to take the dad. The first son, who became a lawyer, begged Death to let the dad live a few more years. Death agreed. When Death came back, the second son, who became a doctor begged Death to let his father live a few more days. Death agreed. When Death came back the third son, who became a priest begged Death to let the dad live till that candle wick burned out and he pointed to a candle. Death agreed. The third son knew Death wouldn’t come back, and he didn’t. Why not?  

ANSWER: The third son went over and blew out the candle after Death left because the son said “till the candle wick burns out”, not “till the candle burns out”. Emoji
