The Forgiving Heart

The forgiving heart is the balm that changes the winds of the universe. Nothing remains the same when any one person says, “I understand, I accept, I forgive. I love.”

How hard can it be to say truthfully,
“I understand.”
“I accept.”
“I forgive.”
“I love.”
How hard? Easy. But you say
we must mean them?
Can we pick and choose who we say what to?
Do we have to say all of them?
What would I do, though,
to change the winds of the universe?
Will saying them and meaning them
change jot just me and the person I speak to
honestly make the world a better place…
not just the world…
the whole universe??
With that at stake, yes,
I can and will say,
“I understand, I accept, I forgive. I love.”
Make it true, God!!
