Hi Beloved bloggers!! “ForgivingFridays” is a special post. It’s a weekly invitation for you to take action to forgive today (or any day!) and post about it on your blog, or on Facebook or other social media, using #ForgivingFridays and #Iforgive.
This is a heartfelt service I began last week, for the first time. What I see for this beautiful day of forgiving are the many expressions of love illustrated by our contributions. (I have a painting in my room with multi-colored hearts that says, “Love in Different Colors”. Each of our posts are like those hearts)
Today, what I did to forgive is touch into that part of me scared to express my joy. I had an early memory come up that I had worked with numerous times. I did the forgiveness anyway!
And right here and now, I claim that I am joy. It is the expression of my loving. And if there is any part inside of me still afraid to express joy, I am ok with that too. I am awed by the many ways that I express inwardly – and I choose to support and affirm myself.
Last week, one beautiful blogger, Simply Etta D., joined me in #ForgivingFridays with a beautiful array of photographs that inspire forgiveness for her. Click here to read her post. Thank you, Etta D. You are a shining example of true service in my perspective. 🙂
Forgiveness starts inside. My commitment is to learn that with every fiber of my being. And I invite you to join me, however that creates a safe space inside of you.
Your expression is so beautiful. Let love show us the way.
ps – this is one of my contributions for Dutch Goes the Photo’s Weekly Challenge, Bloom. Frank, I see each heart in this painting – and each contribution for Forgiving Fridays – as a flower blooming with the gifts of forgiveness.
Here are the guidelines of this challenge:
- Write a post to share your contribution on forgiveness anytime up until next Wednesday night! Free free to be creative – there’s LOTS of space for your expression! Whatever inspire forgiving for you
- Please tag your post with #ForgivingFridays (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Include a link to this post. This creates a pingback, so that I can create a post next Thursday showing all of the submissions over the week.
- Have fun creating your own form of forgiving, of loving YOU!
