Hello again! It's Wednesday, but I feel like it should be Friday. I'm not sure why, but the last couple days have been very tiring. I have been getting not enough sleep and too much coffee :) In fact, yesterday I went to Caribou more than once and ended up having six shots of espresso by the end of the day...yikes! 

I have been reading through Proverbs lately, and I would like to share something with you that I am learning! 

"Love prospers when a fault is forgiven,
      but dwelling on it separates close friends." ~Proverbs 17:9

Forgiving others is a very hard thing to do, yet this says that it is necessary in order for love to prosper. I don't know about you, but I want prosperous love! 

God is the ultimate forgiver. He says that "If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." ~1 John 1:9 

Wow. God is perfect and sinless, and He is willing to forgive all my sins if only I ask! I don't deserve that at all, but He does it becuase He loves...He is love. 

This is my reason why I must forgive others...not because they deserve to be forgiven, but because God has forgiven me! Life is not about me. It is about showing the world what God has shown me. Love, grace, hope, and forgiveness!

I hope you feel God's overwhelming love today! 

...I'm off to Caribou :) and then church to hear my prince talk to the youth group about...yes, LOVE.
