Today is Yom Kippur, a day of forgiveness.

Forgiveness is an important element in all religions,

for without it we wouldn’t have much to aim for

and no grace to receive,

from being forgiven and the grace that comes from forgiving others.

We release ourselves from a prison in our heart

when we forgive.

We let the transgressor out of his chains

so he can go about his life and we can be free to live ours.

We need to love one another

and that includes forgiveness.

Without it there is no peace.

Let us see forgiveness as a river flowing gently through our lives

cleansing the soul as it goes on its way.

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
