In my family saying “I am sorry” is very important…..but the words, “I forgive you”…..mean more to me than anything. I think it says that you no longer hold anger in your heart…and that you have let the burden go…and that you are willing to continue as friends, sisters, brothers, family….whatever your relationship may be.
The first line in Ronnie Dunn’s song “Bleed Red”….sings in my head so often.
“Let’s say we’re sorry before it’s too late. Give forgiveness a chance.”
