It’s a quiet Easter morning at north of 43

And my thoughts are contemplative

None of the hustle and bustle of years gone by

Just moments of thought

I think about forgiveness, and sin, and error

And who we really need to seek forgiveness from.

I Believe but I also wonder

Do we need God’s forgiveness?

Or each others’ forgiveness?

Or is the answer in forgiving self?

I wonder if when we hurt another in our humaness,

And we all do, intentionally or not

(I suspect most often it is not)

If the only salvation is ourselves.

I Believe but I also believe God’s Love

Is but a part of the forgiveness

We all require at one time or another.

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. and longitude 80 W, The other almost equidistant south latitude and longitude 174 E. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.

  1. Beautiful thoughts Chris. I think we all could learn from pondering the thoughts you shared. There’s so much information to process these days – letting our minds calm and slow down in prayer is good for us in so many ways. Happy Easter to you!
