A gentle rain

The human capacity to forgive is like a gentle rain from heaven. It is a kiss of mercy upon a dusty aching heart. Forgiveness is grace giving the recipient a stairway to redemption. It is hard to know what our life will bring us, even from day to day. We make choices, many wise, some errantly fallible. And we learn - and suffer - from those choices. We can only hope that in a moment of true recognition, grace stares at us through our human imperfection and allows us the chance for redemption - the chance to show what we once were and could still be. I believe in that grace. I believe in that chance.

The quality of mercy is not strain’d;
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath.

From the “Merchant of Venice” by William Shakespeare
