A Lesson In LOVE
In the midst of hate and strife, teach me to love!
Whenever someone cuts in line - whether in a shopping queue, or on the road - teach me to love!
When I am tempted to 'lash out' at a person who has offended me, teach me - yes, TEACH me - how to love!
When the fear and strife and sorrow threaten to take over, teach me, Lord, how to love!
How I seek to be gracious and kind and forgiving - to shine a light on this dark old world!
Yet, how can I show such high attributes, if I don't first learn how to love?
Teach me, Lord, teach me how to love. This is my prayer!
THE ART OF FORGIVENESSI recently came across this quote, while online:
I am who I am.
I do not forget.
I do not forgive.
Respect me and I'll respect you.
You only get one chance for a first impression. Don't waste it.
I must say, even though I don't wholly agree with such an ideal, this quote really got me thinking:
What is forgiveness? Moreover, why does it feature so much, in etiquette; in religion and even in our thought processes? Why is forgiveness/a lack of forgiveness so important, to the human condition? In addition, what makes a person decide whether to forgive?
While the answers to many of these questions are quite complex in nature (and therefore difficult to answer correctly, in any capacity); let us explore what forgiveness is.
According to the Free Online Merriam-Webster Dictionary, forgiveness can be described thus:
1.a: to give up resentment of or claim to requital for
b: to grant relief from payment of
2.to cease to feel resentment against (an offender): PARDON

Deep desireLike a whirlwind one departed, fury unabated
Still my life continued, but my soul so unsated
Leaving me broken, and feeling great despair
Moody, brooding, dark, alone, in disrepair
I staggered, reeled, as one with broken heart
My very self wrought, and torn so much apart
But deep in myself, not yet completely undone
Taking life day by day, each moment begun
Then a voice came, one I did know from whence
Sooth my brow, make my ice heart beat thence
Sweet and calm, make wreck of madness, sane
Now steady, rhythmic cadence, blood once again
I turn to look at her, so lovely, as by and by
Like fresh running waters, that never run dry
A constant river source, flows to my streams
To slake my thirst for our never-ending dreams
I now desire only her pure voice, love undivided
As the jewel in my heaven, my North Star guided
Now blessed, and endlessly clear in my mind
Can you now see how it is, this true love defined.
So many times I've decided not to Fave or Comment when I see an artist that doesn't bother to reply to people. We all miss comments sometimes, or get busy, or have time away from dA, but if someone has taken the time to write and say they admire your work - isn't it polite to say 'thank you'? Even if it's a copy and paste when you're too busy to do anything else? I see comments many months old that have never been acknowledged, and it saddens me so much.
I can't acknowledge all s these days, but I always say that clearly in my artists comments. I *always* reply to comments under my deviations as soon as I can People have given their valuable time to me and I want them to know they are appreciated
