for forgiveness

You know when you are angry with someone and you don't want to be angry, but it's like there's a heavy, hot stone inside you of you that is weighing you down and burning you up inside? But then all of a sudden the stone is gone and you feel free and light and full of love? It's like a switch gets flipped and all of those angry and hurt feelings vanish. That is what forgiveness feels like to me.

I am grateful for forgiveness- for the forgiveness of my family and neighbors, but mostly for the forgiveness offered by our Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ. I will fall short much of the time. We all will. Heavenly Father knew this, and so He gave us a way to overcome our shortcomings through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I am grateful that I can repent and try again and again and again. There is joy at the end of all of that, and I am grateful for it.
